This was simple healthy and tasty! However I like a little tang in salads so I followed the suggestion of one reviewer to add vinegar (I used red wine vinegar) and honey. I added two thinly sliced green scallions. I also substituted drained artichoke hearts for the hearts of palm (which I didn't have on hand) and used fresh taragon from my garden. I suppose you could use basalmic vinegar and/or fresh basil or poppy seed for other variations. Read More

This was simply delicious. I usually change something in the recipes I try either because I don't have or don't care for an ingredient. For this one I followed exactly (except I used fresh mint from my yard). Then I forgot to add the hearts of palm I had just bought for it!! ARGH! But it was still delicious -- made it for girls' dinner and there was none left! Thanks! Read More

This was really good. I'm a big fan of dressings that don't cover everything up and this one works for me. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This salad was very flavorful and the leftovers did not get soggy after sitting in the fridge for a day or two. If you don't care for mint dried basil would be a great substitute. This recipe made a lot - 2 dinner salads for my family of 5 plus 2 lunches for me! Read More

Very good salad. I used romaine for the greens. I like my dressing a little more full bodied so I tried it then added a honey mustard dressing. Even for all that I love the combination of salad ingredients--so easy and I probably wouldn't have added hearts of palm to a regular salad on my own. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Yum! The mint (I used fresh) adds so much flavor to this salad. Like the previous reviewer I used artichoke hearts instead of hearts of palm. I thought this would need vinegar but the tomatoes artichokes and olives give it enough of a tang. I'll probably try it with a touch of white wine vinegar at some point. A definite keeper! Read More

the mint was a really nice touch. the oil and the avacado made sort of a paste that coated everything. Very good! Read More
