Paradise! Hanging on the beach last week reminded me of the fresh produce and simple fresh food we had in Costa Rica. It was the first place I ever partook of hearts of palm. How do I describe hearts of palm…..hmmm…pickley…kinda, fresh…yummy….definetly. I had to google hearts of palm to figure out exactly what they are….it really is the heart of palm trees…the middle of the new palm tree shoots, baby palm hearts… I am just glad that it had nothing to do with this guy….
YIKers, he scared the bajeebers out of my littlest son….scared the hearts of palm right out of him. These dudes are everywhere down there…they won’t hurt you…but they sure is OOOgly.
There is no real recipe….just cut up your tomatoes, avocados, and hearts up in to nice sized chunks. I do equal amounts…nice proportions….just like to be fair. Wouldn’t want the maters getting there feelings hurt or anything. By the way I prefer roma tomatoes. Just in case you were wondering… Then juice your lime or limes (or really any citrus is fabulous…I really prefer orange, but I didn’t have one handy) over the motley crew and then give it a good crack of pepper and a generous shake of salt and there you have it!!!
