It's a type of chicory,more specifically.In Brazil we even call it "chicória frisée".The taste is not that far from chicory,but it is much more pretty.It has these frilly around the leaves...cute!Endives are also from the same family,and if you use the smaller leaves from the center you get a nice looking salad as well.
