It's Father's Day and if you're making one of my 20 Low-Carb and Gluten-Free Dad-Friendly Grilling Ideas, this Green Bean Salad with Hearts of Palm, Olives, Red Pepper, and Feta would be a nice low-carb salad to serve on the side.
This salad uses hearts of palm, which was one of my favorite low-carb summer ingredients for a long time. Then Costco stopped carrying those big jars of hearts of palm; don't you hate it when that happens? So if you have to buy those pricey little jars from the grocery store, you can get away with a lot less hearts of palm than I'm using here, but please don't leave it out! The hearts of palm are amazing in this salad.
The other ingredients I love here are fresh oregano and fresh basil. I have both growing in the herb patch in front of my house, and I used a generous amount of both in the dressing here, but if you have to buy herbs please buy basil and you can use a little bit of dried oregano if needed. The flavor of both of those herbs goes perfectly with the Greek olives I used, but Greek olives are not everyone's cup of tea, and if you prefer black olives you can use those.
No matter how much you switch it up to fit your own food preferences, I hope you'll try this tasty salad that's finally getting updated with better photos after nearly 10 years hanging out back in the archives! And Happy Father's Day everyone!
