Hearts of Palm, Red Onion & Avocado Salad

It seems that I always end up with a new favorite salad every summer. This year, I’m making a concerted effort to really come up new recipes like this hearts of palm salad rather than just one to keep from getting bored and motivate me to eat better while I’m still trying to lose the baby weight. Weight, may I add, from three back to back pregnancies. I lost all the baby weight from having Lauren but I still have a good amount left over from Olivia and Joseph. Normally, I wouldn’t even be in such a rush to lose the baby weight, but after two consecutive c-sections, I’m determined to get back to looking like myself. Right now I’m loving this fresh and vibrant Hearts of Palm, Red Onion & Avocado Salad that I found in this William Sonoma cookbook.

I love that just about any type of lettuces will work with this salad! We’ve tried it with red and green butter lettuce, arugula, and many times with baby spinach (one of my faves). I honestly would never have thought to add hearts of palms to my salad. It’s perfect to eat on its own for lunch, with some fish for dinner or with a bowl of soup! Right now, I’ve been eating it on its own for lunch and it’s pretty filling. Scroll down to see the recipe for Hearts of Palm, Red Onion & Avocado Salad.
