Hearts of Palm, Avocado, Kumquat and Fennel Salad

This salad is low on fat but high on flavor.  It combines the tender and subtle flavors of the hearts of palm with the tartness of the kumquats.  It’s all brought together with the rich and nutty flavor of the avocado – give it a try!  You won’t be disappointed.

  • 3 Hearts of Palm stalks
  • ½ avocado, chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped fennel
  • 2 kumquats, seeded and sliced very thin
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fennel fronds (leaves)
  • 2 Tablespoons grated parmesan (not the canned)
  • ½ Tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ Tablespoon balsamic vinegar


How to Do it:

Cut the hearts of palm into slices.

Chop the fennel stalks and a little of the frond.

  1. I have forgotten all about hearts of palm! I need to go get some and make this. I have never had a kumquat, so this needs to be fixed!
