Recipe Box: Truffled Avocado, Tomato, and Hearts of Palm Salad

When the weather is warm, nothing sounds more refreshing than a crisp, healthy salad. This Truffled Avocado, Tomato, and Hearts of Palm Salad is a go-to recipe of mine for everything from dinner parties to picnic lunches. The hearts of palm and truffle salt give it a gourmet twist, but the truth is you can whip up this foolproof recipe in about 10 minutes flat. It’s rather filling, delicious, and a real crowd-pleaser in my experience. Plus, this recipe is Bikini Boot Camp approved, full of fresh veggies and only healthy fats. So if you’re focused on getting in shape for summer without sacrificing taste, you’re in luck!

Here’s how to make it…

Truffled Avocado, Tomato, and Hearts of Palm Salad

Serves 4-6


  • 1 basket cherry tomatoes
  • 2-3 ripe but still somewhat firm avocados
  • 1 can hearts of palm
  • olive oil
  • truffle salt

Recipe Box: Truffled Avocado, Tomato, and Hearts of Palm Salad


  1. Chop your avocados into small, bite-sized pieces and cut the cherry tomatoes in half. Drain the hearts of palm, and then mix all three main ingredients together in a serving bowl (ours is from Lauren’s fair trade shop The Little Market).
  2. Drizzle with olive oil to lightly coat the salad, and toss gently (without mashing up the avocado).
  3. Sprinkle with truffle salt and serve immediately or refrigerate for up to an hour.

Note: If you don’t have truffle salt on hand, a sprinkle of regular coarse-ground sea salt is just as delicious (and how I sometimes choose to make it anyway). You can also get the truffled taste by subbing in truffle oil for olive oil.

      Truffles are a wild mushroom with a really delicious, unique flavor. If you’ve never tried anything truffled, you definitely have to! XO

    Yum! Where are the lovely lemon plates from?

  • Stephie

    This looks great, would love to try it. I also really like the idea of using truffle salt in salads.
    Can I replace the heart of palm with any other vegetable? Unfortunately heart of palm is not available in this part of the Mediterranean!

    • Ghazaleh Kermaani

      maybe cucumber?

    • salah

      I would try marinated artichoke heart.. very similar – if you have access to that?

  • David

    DoTerra essential oils would be great in your recipe. Peppermint or basil would be the best.

  • Lindsay Living Vegan

    Wow, looks amazing! Can’t wait to try it :)

    Dear Lauren,

    You needed to be nice to Heidi. You are missing her edge.

    A fan since laguna,

  • lena

    looks great!

  • Maggie

    This recipe is so tasty and easy! Quick tip- a little goes a long way with the Truffle Salt. I added a dash of Basamic Vinegar and it was really good!

  • Emilia Porath

    Can somebody explain what a can of heart palm is, I can´t find any good translate for it to swedish. :)

  • jeff

    like the use of hearts of palm…but needs an acid…maybe vinegar or lime/lemon juice
