Avocado and Hearts of Palm Lettuce Wraps

1/2 c. Hearts of Palm, diced (about 1/2 can)
1/2    Avocado, diced
1 tbs. Red Onion, diced
1/4 c. Fresh Cilantro, chopped
1/4-1/2 Jalapeno Pepper, very finely chopped (optional)
1 tbs. Lemon Juice
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste

Butter lettuce leaves

Mix all the ingredients together, being careful not to smash the avocado.

Fill lettuce with mixture.

I have found, that to keep the other half of the avocado fresh, leave the pit in and wrap with Glad Press'n Seal. Try to wrap close to the avocado that is exposed so the air doesn't turn it brown. (This avocado had been in my refrigerator for 3 days)
