The Cabbage Palm, or Sabal Palm is the Florida State tree. Old timers would cut a young tree, trim it down to the heart and cook it in hunting camps over an open fire. It meant the death of a tree. I like to make a 'Florida' meal for company, and I make this dip using canned hearts of palm. It incorporates other ingredients, and makes it much tastier than using just hearts of palm. It's just a 'touch' on a Florida native dish just to honor it....AND save a tree.
2Saute' thinly sliced leeks in a 1 Tablespoon of butter until tender.
3In a bowl, combine all ingredients EXCEPT the 2 Tablespoon of parmesan cheese and spread in a shallow 13 x 9 baking dish. Top with remaining cheese and bake 2-5 minutes until dip is light brown and bubbly.
