Hearts of Palm, Artichoke, Avocado, and Butter Lettuce Salad

When my sister was in town, she raved about the Vaca Frita she had made earlier in the month. Whenever I get together with my sisters, we are bound to cook.

We decided that Cuban beef would be our dinner, and searched for a salad to complement it. Maddy spotted some hearts of palm in my pantry so we knew those had to be part of the deal.

We added some diced red onion and poblanos to this hearts of palm, artichoke, avocado, and butter lettuce salad, then drizzled it with a simple champagne vinegar and olive oil dressing.

Lighter Recipes for Thanksgiving

If your Thanksgiving table is anything like ours, it’s filled with carbs. Mashed potatoes, stuffing, fruit salad covered in whipped cream and rolls are a given. We eat it all and fall into a post-meal coma.

Then comes the pies and we do it all again. SO, the Sunday Supper crew figured we could share some lightened up dishes for our holiday table for those who want to make it to 8 PM without lapsing into a deep slumber.

This hearts of palm salad would be a marvelous option. Of course, we’d still make all the regulars, but I’d save a spot on my plate for a big serving of butter lettuce with all the toppings and tantalizing dressing. And there would be no guilt when I went back for seconds.

  5. absolutely stunning and delicious!

  6. Your salad looks delicious and I would be happy to fill my plate with this!

  7. Your salad looks so light and refreshing. I love that all the ingredients are not chopped into itty bitty pieces and you can actually see each ingredient! I would happily eat this entire bowl by myself!
    You’re so lucky to be able to cook with your sister. How fun! You girls came up with a great recipe!

  8. What a gorgeous salad, Liz! This would be lovely anytime of the year.

  9. I think I will have to have this before the holidays!

  10. This refreshing salad is perfect for any moment ! I’m agree with Debra, I don’t know if I will wait for holidays !

  11. You know I’m not a big salad person, but in all honesty, if that bowl passed my way on the table, it would never make it the rest of the way around. I love everything in there, especially the avocado, hearts of palm and artichoke. Yeah, everything. 🙂

  12. My mom would make a salad with many of these ingredients and I just loved it. Your version looks perfect for a lightened up meal!!

  13. I love the addition of poblano pepper Liz, it’s one of my favorites:@)

  14. So simple. Nothing like great ingredients for a solid meal.

  15. What lovely colors – we are huge fans of cucumbers and avocados, so I hope to try this out soon.

  16. Such a lovely light salad Liz. I would have to forgo the avocado *pout* but would love a big bowl right now!!

  17. I’ve forgotten all about hearts of palm. I used them once in a salad, and really like the taste and texture. Pinned this for the week ahead, so now I’ll have to head to the store for another can.

  18. Love the use of the poblano in these. I’ve only used them in chili before. Is it wrong I’d pick all the avocado out and keep it to myself? 😉

  19. This is such a beautiful salad! Perfect for a holiday table!

  20. WHat a wonderful holiday salad. I love artichokes and hearts of palm together.

  21. What a gorgeous salad! Yes, a perfect option for when a lighter meal (or side dish) is required.

  22. I often include hearts of palm in a salad. I love that tangy jolt when I bite into them.

  23. Someone made a salad very similar to this at my housewarming party last night, but they didn’t have artichokes…that would have made it a zillion times better!!! Loveeee your salad

  24. Oh, so full of flavour, thanks for sharing!

  25. Hi Lizzy,
    I’ve never had hearts of Palm but your salad inspires me to try them. Lovely presentation. Lightening up holiday dinners is difficult to do especially since everyone wants all the calorie laden dishes.

  26. Interesting recipe, Liz… yes, celebrity chef Luke Nguyen suggested them to me… they are a little on the bland side for my tastebuds, but mixed like this would be delicious, I think.

  27. Now this is a salad!!! Look at those beautiful colors in there.

  28. What a lovely salad, I love all the greens in it! Healthy and delicious 😀

  29. I haven’t used hearts of palm in years! Thanks for a new recipe1

  30. Yep hearts of palm, artichoke, avocado is a winning combo for a salad. I have been enjoying hearts of palms for years but never buy it.

  31. I could eat this salad every night of the week, it looks so fresh and delicious!

  32. What a gorgeous salad! I can see myself piling this up on my plate too! I love all of these ingredients and the light and simple dressing sounds wonderful!

  33. Confession time – I’ve never, ever tried hearts of palm; but, your pictures and recipe makes me really, really want to – like, now!!

  34. I love recipes that are so easy as well as healthy! Thanks!

  35. You threw me for a loop this week, Liz. I was looking for you under “desserts.” But actually, I’m so glad you contributed this salad instead. I know it sounds crazy, but for me, a Thanksgiving dinner just isn’t complete without a salad. I made a kale salad last year that, ummmmm, wasn’t very warmly received. I feel like this salad would be such a crowd pleaser. I mean, how could you not like all these ingredients? Just printed it!

  36. Never had hearts of palm before but you are making the case for me to try it!

  37. What took me so long to find this recipe. The Hearts of Palm salad is outstanding. I truly believe a good champagne vinegar is key. Love this. Thanks.

  38. This salad really hit the spot for lunch! I loved the combo of fresh flavors! SO good!
