Just felt like sharing this recipe, since it has gone over so well in my cooking classes!

½ teaspoon minced garlic

6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

�� teaspoon sugar

¼ teaspoon salt

½ cup olive oil or as needed

one can hearts of palm, drained

1 ripe avocado

1 red onion, sliced thin

1 medium tomato, cut into wedges

Optional additions: Sliced red bell peppers, orange segments, dill, cilantro or cooked black beans.

In a blender purée garlic with lemon juice, sugar, and salt. With motor running add oil in a stream, blending until dressing is emulsified.

Cut hearts of palm and avocado into 3/4-inch cubes and in a large bowl with a rubber spatula gently toss with onion, tomato and vinaigrette until combined well.

Serves four
