I was originally planning to make this for my culinary group a couple months ago – we were going to meet in person but suddenly it turned into Zoom. But I could not find the hearts of palm, searching high and low through three supermarkets!  I ordered what I have now, but too late for the Culinary Group, for which I made something else.  (Theme had been “Hearts”, interpret any way you wanted.)

So, here we are – finally, Hearts of Palm, Cabbage and Avocado Salad!  PS, the original salad dressing for this dish is here… It is a creamy avo-based vegan dressing.

Prep Time:  15 minutes.
Cook Time: RAW!!  (ie, no cooking!)
Rest Time:  None.
Serves:  4-6.  Scale up as needed.
Leftovers?:  Avo goes brown fast, so not much time for that.

  • Coarsely shredded cabbage as a base
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved   Or 1 cup grape tomatoes, as is. 
  • 1/2 small sweet red onion, cut into thin slivers

  • 1 avocado, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  •  A sprinkling or more (to your taste)  of coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley and/or cilantro (coriander leaf)
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons extra vrgin olive oil
  • Salt and fresh-ground pepper


In a medium bowl, toss the halved cherry tomatoes with the onion slivers, hearts of palm, & avocado.  Place over the cabbage.   Add cilantro or parsley as garnish.  In a small bowl, mix the lime zest and lime juice with the mayonnaise and oil; season the dressing with salt and pepper. Pour the dressing over the salad and serve immediately.
