Hearts of Palm Salad

Heart of Palm Salad (GF)
(8-12 servings)


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
1 cup Fresh Cilantro, chopped
to taste Salt and Black Pepper


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.

Note:               Heart of Palm can be found in 15 oz. cans and 25 oz. jars.  Either will work.  It will take one jar or two cans to give you approximately the 2 cups needed for recipe.
