This zesty little appetizer is going to have everybody at the party guessing the secret ingredient. It doesn't get that creaminess from avocado, or that crunch from edamame. Give up? It's hearts of palm. The core of the tropical plant is mild and sweet, with a tender bite similar to that of artichoke hearts. No need to mention it's super-healthy. Just set it out with some chips and crudités, and bask in the compliments!

I made this without the chives as I didn’t have any at home but nonetheless this was such a good creamy dip! My dip came out way creamier then the one in the picture as I blended it longer and it’s such a good homemade dip/spread. It’s better when cool so after I left it in the fridge for a bit and it tasted even better. So far I’ve left the extras the bridge for a few days and it’s fine hasn’t spoiled or anything.
