Hearts of Palm Salad

This delicious salad is truly one of the easiest side dishes to make. I used to make it all the time back when I was in college, and love customizing it from time to time.

It takes minutes to whip up and is packed with so many fresh flavors. You can serve it as a simple plant-based lunch, or top it with crumbled feta cheese or a grilled salmon fillet.

Hearts of palm has a mild, crunchy texture and is similar in taste to artichoke hearts. I personally love snacking on them whole, but enjoy them even more chopped in a salad.

The salad is made with canned hearts of palm, canned chickpeas, avocado, cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion and parsley. The textures work so well together and give this salad a delicious crunch even a few days after its prepared.

The dressing is a simple olive oil lemon juice mixture and adds the perfect zest to this salad.
