Cherry Tomato + Hearts of Palm Salad

I'm allllllll about Summer salads. When everything is so fresh and colorful, they really are hard to beat. All you need is some ripe produce, good olive oil and vinegar with a little salt and pepper and everything kind of just falls into place. Grill some chicken or fish and serve a little Summer salad on the side- this is my kind of eating right here.  

Hearts of Palm are one of my favorite salad ingredients. They add an interesting texture and take on the flavor of a simple vinaigrette beautifully. We grew up eating these with a little olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper. So simple and so good. This is the perfect little Summer side. Cherry tomatoes are my favorite and I love adding both the red and the yellow for that bright Summer color. I'll be making this one again and again!

Cherry Tomato + Hearts of Palm Salad

1/2 pint red cherry tomatoes
1/2 pint yellow cherry tomatoes

In a small/medium bowl, combine cherry tomatoes, hearts of palm, parsley and red onion. Drizzle with a little olive oil and vinegar, and toss. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve at room temperature or cold.
