1 ripe avocado
1 orange
1 can hearts of palm, drained
2 t extra-virgin olive oil, salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon or lime


  1. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Do this (carefully) by firmly striking the pit with the blade of a heavy knife; twist and remove. Then you hit the handle of the knife on the edge of the sink and the pit will fall off. DO NOT try to remove the pit from the knife with your hand!
  2. Use the avocado halves as little serving bowls. Peel the orange and slice it crosswise into wheels. Place two wheels on each avocado half.
  3. Drain the hearts of palm, slice them into rings and add as many as you like to the orange and avocado.  Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Squeeze lemon or lime juice over and enjoy immediately.
