This is a delicious, hearty Hearts of Palm Salad with lots of colorful variety and nutrients. With 8 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber and only 218 calories, it makes an excellent side salad for your dinner. You can also make it a main lunch dish by adding some black beans or garbanzo beans for some extra calories and protein.
Hearts of Palm is a new and welcome addition to my diet. I had heard of them before, but never tried them. They’re mild with a similar taste and soft texture as artichoke hearts, but they’re shaped like water chestnuts. They’re delicious on nearly any salad.
We used JP’s Italian Salad Dressing, but you can use your favorite vegan salad dressing.
To reduce the calories and fat, you can skip the avocado.
