Hearts of Palm Ceviche

Hearts of Palm Ceviche


  • 1 can hearts of palm, drained and rinsed, cut into half moons
  • 1/2 cup red onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
  • 2 small plum tomatoes, cored and seeded, finely diced
  • 1 habanero pepper, seeds removed for less heat, minced
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro, tough stems removed, chopped
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (optional)
  • 1 avocado, pitted, peeled and diced (optional)
  • Sea salt, to taste


In a medium mixing bowl, place the hearts of palm, the red onion, the bell pepper, the tomatoes, the habanero pepper, and the cilantro. Mix delicately until well combined. Add the juices, and the oil, if using. Mix again gently and place in the fridge for 30 minutes. Remove from the fridge and season to taste with sea salt. Also add the avocado at this moment, if desired. Serve with tortilla chips, on a tostada, or with plantain chips. Or simply serve with a spoon! Bon appétit!


Leftovers can be kept in the fridge overnight, but the ceviche is so much better fresh.
