This traditional Brazilian salad uses hearts of palm in a can. I buy then already sliced so I just need to drain them to use them. They’re such a convenient addition to any salad. 


  • 2 (14 oz.) cans of sliced hearts of palm, drained
  • 1 medium tomato, finely chopped
  • ½ of a small white or yellow onion, very thinly sliced
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. fresh lime juice
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • Pinch of black pepper


  1. In a medium bowl combine the hearts of palm, tomato, onions, and spring onions.
  2. In a small bowl combine the olive oil, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Pour it over the vegetables.
  3. Stir gently to coat. Serve.
