This salad is bursting with flavors! The rustic palm of heart, crispy romaine, and juicy oranges come together for an easy-to-make Romaine Salad With Hearts Of Palm And Oranges salad that tastes delicious any time of the day.


If you’ve visited my blog before, you know that I’m always saying salads are so underrated. It’s because they are. You can literally concoct a salad from almost anything in your fridge. Well, not anything. But you know what I mean. Salads are a wonderful way of getting important nutrients in while clearing out some space in the fridge.

A few days ago while I was chopping up some baby romaine, I remembered I had a few cans of hearts of palm. I decided to toss those into my salad. And I am so glad I did.

Let’s talk about hearts of palm

What are they? Hearts of palm come from the inner core of certain types of palm trees. They can usually be found in cans.

What are some of the health benefits? Hearts of palm are a good source of Vitamin B6, Vitamin B2, Iron, Potassium, Copper, Phosphorus, and Zinc. They’re also low in calories and carbs. They promote a healthy heart, too!

The texture was everything I look forward to in a salad. Hearts of palm are creamy and crunchy. It gives you the perfect bite. And because hearts of palm have this delicate, nutty flavor, they go so well with other vegetables.

So I went on to add mandarin oranges and chopped parsley. Drizzled it with a smooth vinaigrette made from sesame oil, avocado, honey, and sea salt. And finally topped it off with some of my favorite salad toppings:

  • Cashews
  • Sesame seeds
  • Sliced green onions
