Recipe of the Week: Chopped Hearts of Palm Insalata
Chopped Hearts of Palm Insalata
* 1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed
* 1 can hearts of palm, drained
* 1 can corn, rinsed
* Seasoned rice vinegar to taste
Finely chop garbanzo beans and hearts of palm. In a medium bowl combine corn with the chopped beans and hearts of palm. Mix well. Season with rice vinegar to taste.
The secret to this one is chopping the ingredients well so you get a good mix of all the ingredients in every bite. The hearts of palm fall apart pretty easily if they are soft. I use The Chopper for the garbanzo beans to keep them from rolling all over the place.
If you like red bell peppers chop one up and add it to the mix. A tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil will also add a little pizzazz if you want the salad to have a little more gusto.
Enjoy and have a fruit and veggie filled day!
