Modern Millionaire’s Salad

A popular salad from the 1960’s was a Millionaire’s salad. The salad had thinly sliced rings of tender hearts of Palm, lettuce and other items depending upon the chef’s whim. The salad was called the millionaire’s salad due to the fact that the ingredients were considered to be expensive. The salad usually consisted of palm hearts, artichoke hearts, pimentos and other items. My version tastes like a million! I like the tropical flavor of palm hearts and have paired them with other tropical flavors. After all, the ingredients that best together tend to grow together. Hibiscus vinaigrette has a tart-floral flavor that pairs well with the buttery palm hearts. I have also included almonds for extra crunch and flavor. If you do not want almonds, feel free to substitute cashews or other nuts or seeds.
