Photography: Becky Luigart-Stayner; Styling: Lydia DeGaris-Pursell
Yield 2 servings
A zesty salsa-like mixture of tomato, kalamata olives, and hearts of palm flavors this salad. Hearts of palm, which taste similar to artichoke hearts, come from the cabbage palm tree. Look for jars of hearts of palm near the artichoke hearts in your market.

  • 1 1/2 cups chopped plum tomato
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pitted kalamata olives
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1 (14.8-ounce) jar hearts of palm
  • 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced Bibb lettuce leaves
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh Parmesan cheese
