The look of love.Gather Journal Hearts of Palm Salad with Lush Greens and Avocado
In the desert, palm trees act not only as a marker of water, but also a shield; often planted to skirt the perimeter of an oasis, they are a natural guard protecting the water source from the harsh desert sands around it. As an homage to their sheltering ways, we married hearts of palm (the ivory-hued inner core of certain palm trees), with bright, mache greens and avocado, then drenched it all in a hearty, herb-laced dressing.
Whisk together vinegar, juice, herbs, salt, and pepper then whisk in oil.
Toss avocado and hearts of palm with about half of the dressing. Divide among four plates.
Toss mache with just enough of remaining dressing to lightly coat. Plate with avocado and hearts of palm. Serve immediately.
