This salad was so dang easy to make, and was really, really good! I have to say that man, I sure do love hearts of palm! 🙂 My 7 year old really liked this. The dressing was a snap, and I might be making that for other salads in the near future. Don’t leave off the toasted almonds at the end, they are what make this dish!
