Ingredients

Brazilian Chopped Salad
  • 14 ounce can hearts of palm
  • 12 ounce cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1 fennel bulb
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/2 small red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped mint
Lime Vinaigrette
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon honey, or agave
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. For the vinaigrette: Pour all the ingredients in a jar. Add 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper.  Screw the lid on tight and shake to combine.
  2. Drain the can of hearts of palm, then chop into 1/4 inch rounds. Cut the tomatoes in half. Cut the stems off the fennel bulb. Then cut the bulb in half and remove the core.
