Salad plants – seven I'd chopped up (7)


I believe the answer is:


'salad plants' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'seven i'd chopped up' is the wordplay.
'chopped up' indicates anagramming the letters.
'sevenid' with letters rearranged gives 'ENDIVES'.

(Other definitions for endives that I've seen before include "Plants related to chicory, used in salads" , "Herbs" , "'I'd seven plants, in a salad say (7)'" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
