Costa Rica Hearts of Palm Salad is light and refreshing. I love the crunch of the hearts of palm paired with cucumber. This is a great salad for any occasion, we enjoyed it with our Arroz Con Pollo. You can usually find hearts of palm either in a can or a jar. Be sure to rinse them prior to use. You can use your imagination for this one pair it with your salad favorites.
