Grapefruit and Hearts of Palm Salad Recipe
Photo: Johnny Miller; Styling: Sarah Smart
Grapefruit adds a perfect sweet-tart zing to this salad. Hearts of palm have a semifirm texture and nutty flavor similar to that of artichoke hearts, which you could sub in a pinch. If you like the pungency of black pepper, finish with an additional sprinkle.


Serves 6 (serving size: about 1 cup salad and about 2 teaspoons dressing)
