Mild-tasting hearts of palm and avocado pair up for a delicious side-dish salad. The sweet-tart passion fruit dressing bestows an exotic tropical beat.
1. Place oil, passion fruit puree, lime juice, vinegar, sugar and salt in the bowl of a blender. Blend until well combined. Stir in shallot and parsley and set aside.
2. In a large salad bowl, mix the lettuce and hearts of palm.
3. Cut avocados in half, remove the pit and score the flesh into cubes with a knife. Scoop the avocados out with a spoon and add to the salad bowl.
4. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss gently. Finish with some fresh cracked black pepper, if desired.
