1 (14.25 ounce) can
hearts of palm, drained and sliced
1 (15 ounce) can

ripe avocado, pitted, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch chunks
coarsely chopped cucumber
garlic salt to taste
salt and ground black pepper to taste
crushed dried mint
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!
This was really good. I'm a big fan of dressings that don't cover everything up, and this one works for me. Thanks for the recipe!
Very good salad. I used romaine for the greens. I like my dressing a little more full bodied, so I tried it then added a honey mustard dressing. Even for all that, I love the combination of salad ingredients--so easy, and I probably wouldn't have added hearts of palm to a regular salad on my own. Thanks for the recipe!
This was an easy and quick salad to make. I added some red wine vinegar and a little honey to the dressing.
Yum! The mint (I used fresh) adds so much flavor to this salad. Like the previous reviewer, I used artichoke hearts instead of hearts of palm. I thought this would need vinegar, but the tomatoes, artichokes, and olives give it enough of a tang. I'll probably try it with a touch of white wine vinegar at some point. A definite keeper!
the mint was a really nice touch. the oil and the avacado made sort of a paste that coated everything. Very good!
