An unexpectedly delicious side dish from the grill

A heart of palm is the white, tube-shaped, sort of asparagus-tasting thing that comes from the inner core of certain palm trees. It’s most often used cold in salads. We’re going to grill this veggie, and it’s going to kick ass. Serve the grilled hearts of palm on the side like you would grilled asparagus.
