Hearts of Palm Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

  • Calories per serving: 165

A rainforest crop, hearts of palm—which taste like a cross between asparagus and artichokes—are low in calories and cholesterol but offer protein, vitamin C, fiber, iron, and potassium. Ingredient tip: Look for sustainably harvested hearts of palm near the canned artichokes in your natural grocery.

  1. Whisk together all vinaigrette ingredients in a medium bowl. Set aside for 30 minutes or more to allow flavors to blend.
  2. Wash and dry romaine leaves and spinach. Tear romaine leaves and toss with spinach in a large salad bowl. Add hearts of palm, red bell pepper, and avocado.
  3. Pour about two-thirds of the vinaigrette over the salad and toss until well coated. Sprinkle with pecans and serve immediately.
