Brazilian Salad


Get ready to shake up your salad dressing to a Samba beat!  Yesterday’s post Salad Dressing Extraordinaire inspired me to find this Brazilian Salad recipe from  It’s a terrific tasting side salad or main course and makes a great presentation.

(Makes 1 serving)

   1 1/2 head mixed romaine and leaf lettuce;
      washed & dried
   3 medium tomatos; peeled & sliced thinly
   1 large onion sliced; sliced thinly
   1 can (14 oz) hearts of palm; drained & sliced
   1 can (6 oz) black olives; drained
   1 can (15 oz) Garbanzo beans
     fresh chopped parsley; garnish
     olive oil

Line serving platter with large lettuce leaves. Break the remaining lettuce into bite size pieces and place over the top of the large leaves. Arrange tomato slices, overlapping down the center of the lettuce bed, tucking onion slices in between the tomatoes. Arrange sliced hearts of palm next to the tomatoes. Add rows of olives and garbanzos. Serve with a sprinkle of parsley and olive oil or other favorite dressing on the side.

Note: Picture above shows tomato, onion and beans arranged on hearts of palm over lettuce.
