My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Hearts of Palm Salad

I can not remember the last time I saw a Hearts of Palm Salad on a menu or served at someones home. I guess it is just not in vogue any longer, like I would care. This is such a wonderful salad to serve any time from holidays to back yard cookouts.

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon low-sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon olive oil
fresh ground pepper to taste

Drain the hearts of palm, cut them into 1/2 inch pieces, and put them into a large bowl. Stir in the red pepper, yellow pepper, and chopped parsley.

In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, mustard, chicken broth, and olive oil. Drizzle the dressing over the hearts of palm mixture and toss gently. Season to taste with salt (optional) and pepper. Line a serving bowl with lettuce leaves, spoon the salad on top and serve.

  1. I was wondering if there was anything made with Palm. I always joked that I should come up with a great dish for Palm Sunday, but you beat me to it.

    Thanks for sharing,
