Salad therapy – Artichoke heaven

On a recent trip to Dubai I’ve rekindled my fondness for artichoke when I ordered a salad starter.  The dish was so simple and packed some serious flavour that I wanted to share that experience with Anna.  The salad literally takes less than five minutes to prepare but hopefully leaves a  lasting memory on your palates.

What do I need to make it?

  • 2 tins (¬500 gms drained)  artichoke hearts (normally in brine so drain and cut the artichokes into halves)
  • 1 small tomato de-seeded and chopped into tiny pieces
  • Handful of flat leaf parsley chopped
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste

How much will I make?

Enough to feed 4 as a side

How do I make it?

Place drained, halved artichoke hearts in a salad bowl.  Add remaining ingredients and mix gently (artichoke is quite delicate and will fall apart).  Enjoy.
