Hearts of palm, also known as the "millionaire's salad," has a taste similar to that of artichokes. Originally harvested by cutting down whole palm trees, they are now produced through sustainable cultivation and therefore readily available (and affordable). Buy them in glass jars labeled "cultivated."
