If you love artichoke hearts and hearts of palm, then this quick and easy salad is for you. The Za’atar, a Middle Eastern spice mixture, gives it a uniquely delightful flavor.
To make your own Za’atar click on the Bon Appetit link below:
- 1 cup roasted & chopped Asparagus
- 1/2 cup sliced Cherry Tomatoes
- 3 T chopped Basil
- 3 Hearts of Palm, sliced
- 1 can of quartered Artichoke Hearts
- 1 can of Red Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
- Juice of 1 Lemon
- 2 T Olive Oil
- 1 T Za'atar (an Israeli spice mix)
- pinch of Salt & Pepper
Roast the asparagus: Place asparagus on a baking sheet and drizzle with a few drops of olive oil and lightly season with a pinch of salt & pepper. Roast in 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Let cool and slice diagonally.
Combine asparagus, tomatoes, basil, hearts of palm, artichoke hearts and kidney beans in a salad bowl.
In a separate small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, za'atar and salt & pepper.
Drizzle dressing onto salad and toss. Eat chilled or at room temperature.
Think Out of the Ice Box: Try using sun-dried tomatoes or roasted red peppers instead of cherry tomatoes.
