3 tablespoons lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon sugar

2 teaspoons dried dill

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup oil


1. Place all the dressing ingredients in a bowl and whisk them together (you can also put the ingredients in a container with a tight lid and shake it to combine). Set the dressing aside.

3. Divide the lettuce between 8 plates and mound the hearts of palm mixture on top. Sprinkle the pine nuts on top and serve
