Good recipe, took it to a potluck and everyone enjoyed it. Made it without hearts of palm but it was fine. The feta really enhances the dish.

My family loved it. I couldn't find any heart of palms, but the salad was still delicious anyway. I used fresh tomatoes out of the garden which made it all the better. I added avocado to the salad because I had some ready, it was a great touch to the salad.

Absolutely terrific, healthy as the driven snow and that taste fresh and glorious! I had all the fresh ingredients from the garden and was really able to really make this treat of a salad, quickly and easily. I was able to quarter this recipe easily and the use of the lemon juice and balsamic vinegar made a great dressing coupled with the garlic, we just ate this for dinner. Just terrific, I wouldn't add any different except I can see using all kinds of vegetables interchangeably. Thanks, Engrossed! Made for *SSC Pet Parade* July 2008.

We found this salad nice for a change of pace. I had never had hearts of palm before but never shy to try something new. They werent my favourite part of the salad but I'll use them again when making this salad. I did top with the feta cheese because I love any and all cheeses. I used Roma tomatoes (didnt have grape tomatoes). I had leftovers which I'm looking forward to having in a few minutes for lunch! Thanks for sharing a delicious salad with us! I'll be making this one again. Made for ZWT4.

This was so light and refreshing. I absolutely loved it. This also didn't last very long in the house either. I did add the feta cheese, which added a nice salty texture to the salad. For that reason I left out the sugar/splenda substitute.

I really loved this salad. I loved the dressing and of course the hearts of palm! I did it without the optional cheese and will be getting another jar of hearts of palm to make this one again! Thanks Engrossed!

This was really good... I'm not much of a vinegar and oil dressing eater, but this was outstanding.... The garlic and oregano took the "oily" taste away and the lemon gave it a kick.... I had never tried hearts of palm before, but I liked them... My 7 and 4 yr. old children did too.... I love feta cheese and it was a great addition to an already wonderful salad... Prepared for "Review my Recipe".

Very good salad. This is also my first time to try hearts of palm - I only used one can -but would like to try the mariniated version next time. We skipped the sugar/splenda but used the feta cheese. Thanks for sharing!

I really liked this salad. A nice change of pace. I haven't had a balsamic/marinated salad in quite a while. This was my first time trying hearts of palm. I can't say they're my favorite, but they are ok. Kind of mushy, and I tried some directly from the can and they didn't seem to have much flavor. But with the dressing and the other textures from the crunchy beans and so on, altogether it went well and was enjoyable. I think it would have been easier to eat if the tomatoes had been halved. I was a bit anxious over whether I'd like eating raw green beans, but actually I enjoyed it a lot. I think I will try and find new salads to make with raw green beans. I did completely forget to add the feta cheese. Hubby and I were eating this and he said it kind of seemed like an antipasto type of salad, and I said I could see putting salami and cheese in it and eating it as a main course. Then later I realized I'd forgotten the feta. I had some of the leftovers today for lunch, and they were still very good. Thanks!
