Heart of Palm Salad (GF)
2 cups Heart of Palm (see note)
4 medium Avocados, diced
5 tbsp. Fresh Lime Juice, divided
2 cups Orange Grape Tomatoes, halved
½ cup Red Onion, diced

Drain hearts of palm in a colander while you prep the remaining ingredients. Be sure to toss the avocados with 3 tbsp. of lime juice as you wait to assemble salad. Once drained, slice hearts of palm into ½ inch pieces. If too thick, slice pieces in half. Combine all ingredients but last of lime juice in a large bowl. Gently toss and then add lime juice and season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving. Toss gently just before serving and place in an appropriate serving dish.
