A delicious Mediterranean artichoke salad, is so easy to make and sure to impress your family and friends.
It's a light and tasty hors d’oeuvre, or side dish and it will look beautiful on your table.
It is a very popular vegetable in France and is served in most restaurants.
Many people are a little unsure about this beautiful vegetable and don't know how to use them.
After cooking artichokes the outer leaves are usually peeled off and discarded. Although, these leaves are delicious and can be enjoyed by inserting the leaves in your mouth and simply scraping the flesh off with your teeth. Yummy!
It is also necessary for this recipe to remove the choke which is the heart of the vegetable. Just open up the leaves until the centre core is reached and pull it out. It looks much nicer without the choke too.
Then the rest of the vegetable can be chopped up for preparing the salad.
Include it as part of your starter or hors d’oeuvres for special occasions or give your family a treat as you include it with some more delicious fresh French salad recipes.
They are all delicious, can be served hot or cold, and are so good for you.
This is definitely a great appetizer and sure to be a winner every time!Print
