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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place first 9 ingredients in a medium bowl; toss gently to combine. Remove 3 hearts of palm from jar; reserve remaining hearts of palm for another use. Dice 1 heart of palm; add to tomato mixture. Cover and chill at least 2 hours.

Step 2

Cut remaining 2 hearts of palm in half lengthwise. Arrange 2 hearts of palm halves, 3/4 cup lettuce, and 3/4 cup tomato mixture on each of 2 salad plates. Top each serving with 1/2 teaspoon cheese.

I used balsamic vinegar and basil instead of parsley. My husband said it was the best combination of fresh vegetables he'd ever tasted.

Beutiful and Impressive, although I thought it needed a bit more salt and vinegar. The presentation makes it work for a special occation, like Valentines Day!

This is wonderful and very pretty to serve. Don't know about y'all but 3 hearts of palm are just not enough - I used the entire can. Capers are a fabulous addition!
