Artichoke Salad by Chef Marc Vetri

Artichoke Salad by Chef Marc Vetri


12 baby artichokes (about 1-1/2 lbs)
1 cup fresh baby arugula leaves
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
12 to 16 slices parmesan cheese, shaved
  Salt and pepper, to taste

Cooking Instructions

Squeeze the lemon juice into a bowl.

Working with one artichoke at a time, snap off the tough outer green leaves until you are left with a small, bullet-shaped artichoke with pale yellow leaves that turn green just at the tips.

Cut off the tip of the artichoke crosswise.

Cut the stem flush with the bottom of the artichoke so that no green remains.

Cut the artichoke in half lengthwise and scoop out and discard any choke.

Thinly slice the artichoke halves lengthwise and immediately toss the pieces into the bowl with the lemon juice, to prevent burning. Repeat with remaining artichokes.

When all of the artichokes are sliced, add the extra virgin olive oil to the bowl, season with salt and pepper and mix thoroughly.

Arrange the arugula leaves on individual plates and spoon the artichoke in the center.

Garnish with shaved Parmesan cheese.

Serves 4.
