Low-Carb Salads with Hearts of Palm
I think hearts of palm are such a treat, and they’re a perfect ingredient for salads, so today I’m sharing Low-Carb Salads with Hearts of Palm!
Summer is coming, and for me that means I’ll be eating salads! When the temperature is ihigh nineties, I never want to cook, and that’s when cold summer salads like these Low-Carb Salads with Hearts of Palm are such a winner. All the salads I’m featuring here include hearts of palm, an ingredient I became infatuated with a few years back when Costco started carrying them in big jars. And I have LOVED hearts of palm for years and years now!
Sadly I haven’t been able to find those big jars at Costco lately, but you can buy hearts of Palm at Amazon.com (affiliate link) and occasionally you’ll find some there that are a bit more inexpensive than the ones they sell in the grocery store. (Amazon even carries those two packs of big jars like I loved so much at Costco, but they were definitely more of a bargain at Costco!) But even if you have to cut down on the amount of hearts of palm a little, I hope you’ll try a few of these salads. Hearts of palm are such a perfect low-carb food, and the taste is delightful. And in these favorite salads I’m combining them with some of my favorite summer ingredients for salads that you’ll want to make over and over!
WHAT ARE HEARTS OF PALM?
Hearts of palm are a slightly-crunchy vegetable that’s harvested from the center of domesticated palm trees. They used to be a controversial ingredient, but now harvesting methods don’t damage the trees and wild palms are protected in many places. And Hearts of Palm are so delicious! Here’s more about Hearts of Palm and how to use them.
