"I had a similar salad from a deli and tried to duplicate it. This is what I ended up with. I think it's fabulous! The deli salad was my first experience trying hearts of they're a new favorite! And yes, the green beans are uncooked in this, but you can blanch them if you like. *I'm adding artichoke hearts as an alternative to hearts of palm, in case you can't find them or they are too expensive. Artichoke hearts are just as good, and work great with the flavors of this salad."

I'm feeling a little more comfortable to make things that are not just your basic recipes. This was my first attempt at doing something a little more complicated and I was so happy when it came out so good. I have made it a couple of times and we love it!

This was a side to some fried steak and baked potatoes that went over real well with us. We loved all the ingredients together, and the flavor was great! I will make this again and soon according to Al!

I used artichokes and Splenda to prepare my salad. I have to tell you that I REALLY enjoyed this salad! The mix of flavors and ingredients couldn't be better. The dressing was superb! I see myself making this often. Thank you for posting it for us T! Linda
