Hearts of Palm Salad with Champagne Vinaigrette

One of these days I’m going to get a tiny heart-shaped pastry cutter and cut thick slices of hearts of palm into heart shapes. Wouldn’t they have been adorable in this easy and refreshing Hearts of Palm Salad? Today, however, a day that found me running errands and cleaning my hardwood floors, I wanted something simple, but unique.  I decided to throw my favorite salad “add ins” into a bowl without the lettuce, and toss it with champagne vinaigrette. It’s pretty fancy food to be enjoying during the playoffs, but around here there is more to baseball watching than hot dogs and a bag of peanuts!

Hearts of Palm Salad
1/3 cup sliced black olives
1/3 cup sliced stuffed green olives
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion
4 slices bacon, fried crisp, crumbled

Slice hearts of palm into coins. Lightly toss with remaining ingredients. Drizzle with vinaigrette just before serving. Store in fridge. Makes 4 ample side salads.

Champagne Vinaigrette 

½ teaspoon salt
1½ teaspoons sugar
¼ teaspoon dry mustard
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
½ cup vegetable oil

Place all dry ingredients into the bottom of a medium size mixing bowl and whisk together until blended.
