I have a cold and I would rate it a 4 with "off" taste buds, but I am going to give you the benefit of the doubt and bump it to a 5. I made mine with tomato and yellow pepper. I did add some fresh orange juice which was wonderful. THANKS for the recipenap, Veggie Swap Jan 2010.

Very fast and easy salad that is may be a new taste sensation for some. I have had hearts of palm before and love them. Costa Rican food is amazing! This was fresh and delicious and you just cannot beat the nutritional facts here. Low in fat and good carb/protein ratio. The sodium content would be greatly reduced if the canned hearts of palm are rinsed well since they are canned in salt water. I added tomato here but not bell pepper which would be a great addition adding crunch and color. Served this on some romaine hearts for a fantastic salad. I never imagined that I would like such a simple salad dressing as this. Just some fresh lime juice- definitely use fresh here! and a little salt and fresh ground black pepper. This just goes to show you that simplicity can be very tasty and healthy too! Thanks Sharon!

This salad is exactly like the hearts of palm salads I ate all over Central America. It's simple, healthy and refreshing. If you love hearts of palm you couldn't possibly NOT like this salad! I added the red bell pepper and used just the plain lime juice for dressing! yum! Thank you! zwt4 in S/C America.
