what is the name of the thing (vegtable??) that is sometimes in salads (usually itailian ones i think)...looks almost like a water chestnut, but its not...small, white, circular but kinda flat...has 'rings' if you pull it apart, kinda soft, sweet...i just never know what these are called and i love them. thanks!!

or artichoke hearts (these might be similar to palm hearts, but not the same)?

I would say hearts of palm, except hearts of palm aren't sweet, they're more sour.

They are very popular in italian cuisine though, and also one of my favorite salad components EVER. (: Hearts of palm + tomato + mozzarella + drizzle olive oil and balsamic = love
