Snow Pea and Hearts of Palm Salad with Ginger Carrot Dressing

Hearts of Palm are a wildly underrated ingredient. While they don’t deliver a strong flavour on their own, they hold onto dressings incredibly well and have a delicious texture that’s snappy without being super crunchy. Snow peas are a great vegetable to have around. If you don’t want to make salad, you can just dip them raw in the dressing of your choice.

This recipe is a gem of Salad Time. It’s a people pleaser, and it is FAST to make. If you don’t want to make the dressing from scratch, you can buy carrot ginger dressing at most grocery stores (it’s the dressing you get at sushi places.)
