  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3 Tbsp fresh cilantro
  • 3 Tbsp fresh basil
  • 3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 c olive oil
  • 1 can (14-oz) hearts of palm, drained and sliced
  • 2 large avocadoes, diced
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced very thin
  • 1 large tomato, diced or 1 pt cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3 c mache lettuce or Boston lettuce leaves, torn
  • 8 oz grilled wild shrimp, seasoned with salt, pepper, and a little lime juice

Directions

  1. To make dressing, combine garlic, cilantro, basil, lemon juice, orange juice, and salt in a blender. Slowly add olive oil and blend until smooth. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine sliced hearts of palm with avocado, red onion, lettuce, and tomato.
