Never Fails to Please
This salad is delicious and everyone who eats it raves about it. I am not sure about the individual who thought the shallots were bad in it; I love shallots and I have never had anyone comment about overpowering flavor of shallots. I will say, though, that after the first time I made it I have never included the hearts of palm. I don't personally see the appeal of them, and they are quite expensive. Furthermore, they come canned, while the rest of the salad is fresh. Leftovers are still good the next day, but after that it is too wilted, naturally, so if you think you might not eat all of it at one sitting I would only dress the portion you plan to eat. I have served this at pot lucks and at Thanksgiving dinner and it is always a favorite.
Pros: Delicious, beautiful
Cons: A bit of work, some expensive ingredients
