"I live in Ecuador and my husband is the quality control manager at a factory that makes canned goods.....including hearts of palm. He started bringing home cans of the stuff a few months ago, but I had no idea what to do with it. I've tried a few recipes, but wasn't convinced that I liked "palmito" until I found this salad! I had it over mixed greens with a couple of hard boiled eggs---filling, tasty and really healthy! Thanks for this!"
"This was good, really good! I certainly picked a winner to try here! Didn't change a thing, not one thing, and that's probably a first for me, I change every recipe, including my own. On my last trip to the States I bought a Microplane ribbon grater, and I had these large, lovely, yummy shavings of Parmesan resting on my hearts of palm. So easy, so impressive, so yummy!"
"Well... I screwed up the recipe but it was still amazing! I was short a tomato so I used an avocado in place of it. And I forgot all about the shaved parmesan on top. Yet, the salad was still really delicious. Now that's a great recipe! This is a salad with attitude - and we loved it!"
"This is one of the most requested extras by my family since I introduced them to Hearts of Palm [which I have enjoyed for years.] I like to use the cuts and tips that are available. Just as good and a bit less pricey. Try it over fresh, chopped spinach, YUM. Two thumbs up! 9/16 - Maybe you should hold off on the spinach for now? Try butterleaf lettuce."
"Excellent--even without the tomatoes. I used some slivered Vidalia onion instead of the green onions. It certainly is easy to make! Thanks for sharing the recipe."
"Wow! What fun! I like to go to a store and purchase something I have never tasted or heard of before and find a way to cook it! (Thank God for RecipeZaar and all it's creative cooks!) This was delicious! Very easy and so fresh. I have made it three time so far and will make again and again. My daughter keeps asking me for the recipe, she likes to take it for potlucks and BBQ's in B.C. I have added sliced black olives on one occasion for a change but otherwise it is terrific as is!! Thank you for posting this yummy surprise."
"Wonderful! We are dieting and this low carb,heart smart dish was not boring."
"Made the recipe for Hearts of Palm Salad for a dinner last night. All the guests raved about how wonderful it was! Definitely a winner in my recipe book! :-)"
"Outstanding!! Never had hearts of palm before until this week. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this recipe! Could eat it every single day. Thanks so much for posting!"
"I love hearts of palm! Made this salad last night and reqlly enjoyed it.Thanks Bergy!"
"A refreshing change of pace."
"This was soooo yummy. I used red onion rather than green simply because I forgot to buy some at the store and had the red in the pantry. I also used cherry tomatoes since they are better tasting this time of year. I used grana padano cheese since it is what I had on hand. I also served it on top of a bed of greens. I think I cut the hearts of palm and the tomatoes too big. I should have 1/4 the cherry tomatoes (they were big) and cut the hearts thinner. Even my DH gave it the OK and he doesn't care for hearts of palm. Thanks for a great recipe. I can't wait to serve this to my guests next weekend."
