White Bean and Hearts of Palm Salad

This is a total pantry salad, with the addition of some cucumber, celery and onion.  It is in fact a salad born of things I had in the fridge and the pantry, which is how many of us have been cooking this year.  The days or running to the grocery store for a missing ingredient are over, if ever those days existed for you in the first place.

Hearts of Palm

Texturally a good heart of palm is a lovely balance between tender and crunch. Their flavor is slightly reminiscent of artichoke hearts, but more delicate.  The similarity is underscored especially when they are jarred or canned, as they are packaged with a liquid that is similar to the liquid used with artichoke hearts.

Dressing for Hearts of Palm Salad

You can use whatever vinegar you like.  You can use lime juice instead of lemon.  You can use all vinegar, or all citrus juice, whatever you have around.  You can use brown mustard instead of Dijon. 

You can skip the whole make-your-own dressing thing, and use about ¼ cup of bottled vinaigrette, or you can use whatever vinaigrette you made earlier in the week.  If I had fennel instead of celery I would have loved to use that instead, but as mentioned – no last minute runs to the grocery store for me.

If you’d like to add some crumbled feta or cotija cheese, that would change the salad from being vegan to vegetarian, but it would be delicious.  I also think some chopped up radicchio would be great, adding an appealing bitterness and purpley color.
