Orzo & Hearts of Palm Salad with lemon dill dressing

Just when I thought I had tried every ingredient, hearts of palm came along. If you have not heard of hearts of palm, they are a delicious vegetable that comes from the stem of palm trees. Hearts of Palm are considered a delicacy and have started gaining some traction in the food world. One of my favorite ways of using hearts of palm is in an Orzo & Hearts of Palm Salad with lemon dill dressing. My go to brand is Reese Hearts of Palm. It is absolutely the best tasting.

Orzo & Hearts of Palm Salad with lemon dill dressingThe crunchy texture of hearts of palm makes them wonderful additions salads including this Orzo & Hearts of Palm Salad with lemon dill dressing. The addition of fresh cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, artichoke hearts with the lemon and dill dressing makes a delicious combo sure to be a hit at any summer cook out.

I only use the Reese brand because all their Hearts of Palm products are Non-GMO verified, low cholesterol, rich in potassium and very versatile. The convenience is a plus too, just open the package and you are good to go!

In addition to hearts of palm, Reese also has artichoke hearts, capers, anchovies, water chestnuts and more. I especially love the artichoke hearts which are great on pizza and in a spinach artichoke dip. I highly recommend trying the Hearts of Palm & the Artichoke Hearts. Best of all you can earn rebates on Reese products if you download the Ibotta app.
