This simple shrimp salad looks exactly like something that would be on the menu at a fancy detox spa, right? But you can make it at home in a couple of minutes, with just a few ingredients.

The most interesting among them is hearts of palm, crunchy vegetables harvested from the center of the cabbage palm tree.

They look a lot like white asparagus, but their flavor is milder, so you can throw them in salads with lots of different flavor profiles. They’re also a great source of fiber, iron, and potassium.

Once you get a taste of them in this dish, you may want to start throwing them in all kind of other meals.

Shrimp Salad
  1. In serving bowl, toss greens with shrimp, avocado, and hearts of palm.
  2. Squeeze lemon juice on top and season with salt.


Shrimp is a low-calorie source of protein and is also loaded with selenium. Here, it’s perfectly balanced with nutrient-dense spinach and hearts of palm and healthy fats from avocado. The flavors are so fresh all you need to dress it is a little lemon and sea salt.
