I love being inspired by different ingredients, creating and making dishes that are out of our family’s normal eating routine. It’s dishes like this ARUGULA AND HEARTS OF PALM SALAD that keep me excited about trying new food and flavor combinations.

What I find fun about creating fresh salads that aren’t your average chopped salad is that friends and family just go crazy over them.

I’ve only ever had hearts of palm in a salad at a Brazilian inspired restaurant called Rodizio Grill. We only go there on very special occasions due to the fact that we all typically overeat. While my hubby sticks to all you can eat meat, I stick to the salad bar. There is a large variety of salads – one with hearts of palm. Since I had never tried them, I was intrigued. With tomatoes and a lemon vinaigrette, this salad was a delightful surprise. Once I learned this tropical harvested vegetable has health benefits like being low in cholesterol, rich in potassium and containing Vitamin C, I was so excited. In addition, they can be cooked a variety of ways. Not only do they make a great crunchy and slightly sweet addition to your salads, but they are also a great pizza topper too! I can’t wait to see what else we’ll do with it.

When I picked up some Reese Artichoke Hearts for our favorite Spinach Artichoke Dip, I grabbed the Reese Hearts of Palm as well. I really never pick up any other kind of artichoke hearts besides Reese’s because of the quality. And I appreciate the Reese Heart to Heart Kitchen campaign, the idea of the kitchen being the heart of the home because it’s where families cook, create memories and share meals together like this Arugula and Hearts of Palm Salad.

There will still be plenty of reasons to make dishes that bring people together. And just because the cold weather is getting nearer, it doesn’t mean I will stop eating my greens and fresh salads like this Arugula and Hearts of Palm Salad. Enjoy friends! XOXO San
