Organic Baby Greens with Hearts of Palm & Toasted Pine Nuts
- 1 5 oz. Package of Organic Baby Lettuces
- 3 Hearts of Palm (comes in jar or can)
- 1/2 cup Toasted Pine Nuts
- 8 Cherry tomatoes (or grape tomatoes) sliced in halves or quarters
Slice the hearts of palm lengthwise then in half
Toast the pine nuts either in a skillet on top of the stove or in the oven
Put the lettuce in a bowl and add remaining ingredients
You can dress this salad with any dressing but I think it tastes great with the lightest simplest dressing of just 1/4 cup EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) and juice of 1/2 a lemon with fresh ground black pepper & a grind of Pink Himalayan Salt.
*Note: You can also shave some Pecorino Romano Cheese over the top for a yummy finishing touch!
This salad was an inspiration from a salad that I used to get at the restaurant called “Bonefish Grille.”
Unfortunately they stopped putting the toasted pine nuts in it and switched to sunflower seeds which I did not like anywhere near as much. They said it was because of people with allergies but who knows.
Just shows that you can always re-create your favorite restaurant dishes at home if you just get creative
