I had 3 hearts of palm in the fridge, so made this to serve one. I enjoyed the flavors! Thanks Bergy!
Easy, light, healthy and tasty. I couldn't find 16 oz cans of hearts of palm -- only 14.1 oz which is weird and no biggie but thought I'd mention that. The dressing for this salad is tasty and gives a nice flavor. I had half of a sad and lonely English cucumber that had no where to go so I chopped it up and added it to this salad and I must admit it does well in this. This is a great low cal snack with a satisfying crunch. Thanks!
