Hearts of Palm Salad Recipe

Here is another new salad we made this summer. I really didn't want to get burned out on the old standby lettuce & tomato salad so each week I tried adding in a new salad. This is a new family favorite. We had heart of palms for the first time during an Aruba vacation. I was thrilled to have found them in my local store. Most stores should have them in the can good aisle somewhere near the artichokes. If I can find them in my tiny town you should be able to find them in your store.

Hearts of Palm Salad

Ingredients

1 can of hearts of palm
1/4 cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 cup of tarragon vinegar
2 garlic clove, minced
1 each of yellow, red and orange bell pepper
1 small head of lettuce or equivalent of any other type of lettuce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt & pepper to taste

Directions

Cut the hearts of palm into slices/pieces, toss in bowl.
Cut up veggies into pieces and toss in bowl.
Tear up lettuce and toss in bowl.
Mix together olive oil, vinegar, minced garlic, garlic powder, salt & pepper. Toss it with veggies right before serving. Serves 4 side salads.
