ISO Fresh Artichoke Salad like we had in Barcelona
My sisters, niece and I spent a week in Barcelona. My younger sister's comment that Barcelona was our kind of place because there were artichokes on every menu was spot on!! Now that I am home I am craving the kind of raw artichoke salad we had there. Everything I find on the internet starts with canned artichokes. I found some baby artichokes in the market yesterday so what now? TIA
Ooooh, I love artichokes in any form. Here's my ultra simple version for a raw salad: Trim off the outer leaves so you are left with the tender, yellow inner leaves & heart, trim the stems, slice thin. Dress with lemon, olive oil, s, p. Et voilå!
I'd suggest using just the heart, slicing thinly and dressing as fauchon suggests, but then I would put very thinly sliced pieces on parmesan on the top. Used to get it that way at Le Madre in NYC. It was so good.
