A Great Hearts of Palm & Artichoke Salad

Spring is here and it calls for fresh flavors! I have a salad recipe that is easy to prepare and it is flavorsome. It pairs well with grilled and roasted meats.

Hearts of Palm & Artichoke Salad:


1 can (14oz) of artichoke hearts, quartered

1 can (14oz) of hearts of palm

½ cup of fresh parsley, finely chopped

½ teaspoon of paprika

½ tablespoon of balsamic vinegar

1 ¼ tablespoons of olive oil

½ tablespoon of lemon juice

1 dried bay leave

2 stalks of fresh marjoram, finely chopped (optional)

½ cup of mixed olives, chopped or sliced

3 peperoncini peppers, thin sliced

Salt and pepper, to taste

Drain all the water from the artichoke and the hearts of palm. Slice the hearts of palm into ½ inch slices.

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients, with the exception of the bay leave. Toss carefully. Add bay leave and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Remove and discard bay leave before serving.

Note: You can substitute the fresh marjoram for 1/8 teaspoon of ground marjoram.
