1 The day before serving the salad, prepare the salad dressing and set aside.
2 Place the hearts of palm, two-thirds of the sliced olives, the chopped scallions and cherry tomatoes in a large jar or plastic container. Add enough salad dressing to cover, then shake ingredients together and refrigerate.
3 During the morning before planning to serve the salad, rinse the romaine and tear into medium-size pieces. Refrigerate until ready to use.
4 Prepare guacamole, using your favorite recipe or by combining the avocado, garlic, lime juice, green chile and salt. Thin with sour cream to the consistency of mayonnaise.
