Starter to go with cassoulet?

We have friends coming to dinner and one is the guests has asked me to make the cassoulet I made a few years ago. Happy to do that as it's easy but last time we didn't have starters, this time I'd like to serve a starter - but needs to be light. Am thinking maybe a salad? Any thoughts appreciated

Sticking with the French theme, salade du gésiers or warm goats cheese on toast with jam/chutney?

Something with crunch - seconding the above, or endives with pear, blue cheese + walnuts

Something like this. Fig or cherry jam is suggested, but sure I've had it with apricot.

Goats cheese salad with balsamic reduction or blue cheese and walnut salad? Alternatively just do bread and olives

Mmm deffo an endive, blue cheese, pear and walnut salad perhaps with croutons for crunch. Yum.

Was going to suggest goats cheese and red onion tart but the pear and walnut salad sounds lovely as well.

Thanks all, I was torn between salad as a starter and salad as a side dish but I think better as a starter and some great ideas, thank you
