Marinated Hearts of Palm

Marinated Hearts of Palm

Add a teaspoon of honey to the vinaigrette to make it a little sweet or a mashed malaguete pepper to make it a little hot.

Ivory-colored hearts of palm are the tender center of a palm variety originally native to the Amazon. Since the tree, at about 6 feet tall, must be killed to reach this core, it is thankfully no longer wild-harvested, but sustainably cultivated.
