Whole30 Caprese

September is the perfect time for a lovely Caprese salad, so I wanted to create one delicious enough that you don’t even miss the cheese…Hello, Hearts of Palm! With avocado, cucumbers and olives, it’s fun to assemble. Be sure to use tomatoes large and small, and of different varieties, for even more of a treat. By the way, the Balsamic Basil Mint Dressing would be a fun alternative with a Chimichurri steak. This is what we call an ingredient recipe. It’s meant to serve as an inspiration. My Whole30 philosophy is to concentrate on what I can eat, rather than what I can’t.
