Heart of palm salad with summer tomatoes, avocado and fresh corn
I whipped this up yesterday from things I found in the fridge and it was awesome and beautiful to look at. I didn’t think to take a pic of it until I’d nearly nibbled it out of existence, but I restrained myself and got a wee shot. The proportions of the ingredients are very flexible. I had it with some jerk chicken and garlic bread. You could toss in some EVOO if you want to cut the acidity a bit, but I didn’t.
