What the hell is a heart of palm? Ummmmm …. awesome!
It has the taste of an artichoke heart but with the texture of asparagus. It comes in a can, so you don’t have to worry about preparation. And it makes an easy, tasty salad that is a sure-fire crowd pleaser.
For starters, find yourself a can of hearts of palm. It’ll be with the other vegetable cans.
Open the can, dump out the contents into a colander and rinse well.
Next, slice the hearts into bite-size pieces (on an angle, if you want to be fancy about it).
Slice up two well-ripened tomatoes (we used one red and one yellow because we are fancy like that).
Finally, slice an avocado into bite-size pieces.
Dump all the ingredients onto a plate or into a bowl and season generously with salt and pepper.
Add a splash of orange juice, the juice of one lime and a good drizzle of olive oil.
Take a load off. Don’t you think you’ve earned it?
This is great all on its lonesome, or with some spicy as the star of dinner.
