About a year or so ago I was in Honolulu and we ate at Nobu. One of the side dishes we had was a heart of palm salad. It was my first (and only) time ever having hearts of palm and I liked the dish. I've been keeping my eyes open for it, but with no luck. The other day, I spotted some canned hearts of palm and brought it home. I haven't popped it open yet, and was wondering if the canned can be compared to fresh? Anyone use canned hearts of palm? If so, what for? I'm thinking about maybe a crab hearts of palm salad. What kind of vinaigrette?
I was intrigued by it then and have never seen it on another menu since. Just curious what people do with it, if anything.
