Alrighty, so spring is less than 30 days away… for me, that means bikinis, short shorts, and crop tops will be coming out soon! I usually eat healthy all year round, but about the end of February, I like to really crack down on what I eat to get ready for that spring and summer bod- yay for sunnywarm days! Salads become a big part of my diet this time of year and this is one of my faves…it’s one my mom has made a lot for our family and it is easy, light and delicious!
Here’s what you’ll need:
2-3 Heads of Boston Lettuce (you may substitute for other greens if desired)
1 Bunch of green onions
1 can Hearts of palm
2 cloves Garlic
2 Tbsp. Sugar (next time substituting for stevia)
Grated Peel of 1 Lemon
1 tsp. salt (I use pink Himalayan salt)
½ tsp. Pepper
6 Tbsp. Lemon juice
6 Tbsp. Sour Cream (next time I make I’m going to sub for plain yogurt)
First you want to chop up the green onions and hearts of palm (shown
above), grate lemon and mince the garlic (also shown in above photo)
Clean lettuce, wrap in paper towel and chill in refrigerator while
preparing the dressing
Then in a bowl (we used a large measuring cup) combine all your dressing ingredients and whip all together!
When ready to serve, put lettuce in bowl, add onions and Hearts of Palm, pour on dressing, toss and serve! I don’t like to use all the dressing so I put the leftover dressing in a mason jar and keep in the fridge to use the next day!
I absolutely love this salad; I’m a huge lemon girl (they’re full of amazing health benefits) so I was stoked when my mom finally gave me the recipe! Let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions for different variations (I’ve added chicken before for some protein-so tasty)!
