I have an obsession with hearts of palm and am always trying new ways to incorporate them. This salad is one of my favorite creations.
Hearts of Palm Salad
(Prepare your desired amount of salad fixings, for one or several servings).
Romaine lettuce, washed and torn
White onion, thinly sliced (optional)
Canned hearts of palm, sliced thinly
If making a single salad serving, mound fixings on a plate and drizzle with dressing (recipe below). If making a full salad, place fixings in a salad bowl, toss with dressing and serve immediately.
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon light sour cream
1 small clove garlic, squeezed through garlic press
Salt & pepper to taste
Whisk dressing ingredients together until thoroughly combined. Store any leftover dressing in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
Canned hearts of palm can be found in most grocery stores, usually near the canned artichoke hearts.
