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.


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!


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!
