Hearts of Palm...not sold

Looks good right?
Would have been without the hearts of palm (one of the main ingredients).
I'm just not sold on that stuff...its mushy and tastes sort of like a tin can.
Maybe because it comes out of a tin can...weird.
Anyway I wasn't able to expand my taste buds quite this far...
however if you like those weird vegetables/whatever they are then you will like this,
or if you don't then just leave it out and you will like this salad.
I loved the vinaigrette and the mango with the red onions...just not the nasty tin can veggies.
So try it
with or without the weird white cylindrical thingys.

Mango and Hearts of Palm Salad with Lime Vinaigrette
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
4 tsp dijon mustard
1 large mango, peeled, pitted and cut into 1/2 inch wedges
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
1 can hearts of palm, drained, halved lengthwise, and cut into 1 inch pieces (or not)
1 head Boston lettuce, washed and dried
In a small bowl, whisk lime juice and mustard.  Set the vinaigrette aside.
In a medium bow, toss mango, onion, hearts of palm, and half of the vinaigrette; season with S&P.
Evenly divide the lettuce among 4 plates; top with mango mixture.  Season with additional S&P and drizzle with remaining vinaigrette.
Serves 4.

I made this for a lunch while Logan was at work, hence the Paige rating.
