My name is Melissa and my blog is about preparing delicious meals at home, experiencing enticing meals at restaurants, culinary related travel, and living and eating around the world. We move around a lot (Brazil, Angola, and who knows where we will be next) so I have an awesome opportunity to experience food around the world. Life is one big adventure!

This is a delicious, easy to prepare salad. It's a little spicy so if that's not your thing, you can omit the chipotle powder. This is great on its own or over a nice piece of baked chicken (or meat of your choice). Juice of 1 med lemon 1 tsp white vinegar (optional) 1 tsp salt 1 tsp sugar 1 tsp chipotle powder ½ tsp ground black pepper ½ large red onion, diced ½ c finely chopped cilantro 2 med roma tomatoes, diced 2 large ripe avocados, diced 5 stalks Hearts of palm (or one large jar), thinly sliced 1 med lime
Whisk first 6 ingredients together until spices dissolve. Add everything else except the lime. Lastly, squeeze the lime juice into the bowl and fold the mix together.
