Hearts of Palm Salad, based on the “South Beach Salad” from the South Beach Diet. Hearts of palm, artichokes, bell peppers, kalamata olives, lettuce or spinach and tomatoes in a vinaigrette. Super yum.
You’re gonna wanna eat this one. Hearts of Palm Salad, a uniquely scrumptious salad from the South Beach Diet, which Don and I follow periodically to reset our metabolisms. The diet includes some terrific recipes, many that I share with you.
Of course I modified the ingredients in this recipe a bit based on what I had on hand. Hearts of palm are tasty, somewhat similar to bamboo shoots but fatter. The combination of vegetables makes an easy, pretty salad.
This salad is perfect for a high-falutin dinner or a simple picnic at the park. Impress your family and friends with this dish that takes only 15 active minutes and an hour’s resting time in the fridge. Such an easy dish to make. And so delicious.
South Beach Diet
One of the things I like about the South Beach Diet is the creative recipes. Even though I write a recipe blog, we tend to use a menu rotation than can get boring instead of trying new recipes regularly or changing up our menus every couple of weeks. Don loves this diet not only for the variety, but also because he loses weight quickly in the first phase. And the next two phases help him to lose a few more pounds and maintain the loss for a good, long time. What’s your favorite diet?
