Raw Artichoke Salad

Raw Artichoke Salad

Sliced very fine on a mandoline, artichoke hearts make a refreshing and very pretty salad. We love to use the smallest artichokes for this dish but the full grown versions can also be used. The trimmings can be simmered in a flavorful stock, strained and the resulting broth seasoned with crème fraîche for a simple and delicious artichoke soup. These two can be combined, a ladle of hot soup with a garnish of raw salad to great effect.

Ingredients

Serves 4-6 people

  • 6-8 small artichokes: hearts trimmed out and placed immediately into a bowl of acidulated water. The leaves, stems and chokes can be reserved for soup.
  • 2 cups parsley leaves
  • Juice from 1 lemon or 3 Tablespoons Verjus
  • 3 Tablespoons peppery olive oil
  • Good sea salt

Preparation

Prep: 10 min • Ready in: 10 min

Acidulate a bowl of water with a half a lemon or a splash of vinegar and drop the trimmed artichoke hearts into it as you prepare them. Collect the trimmings in a separate bowl and put these to simmer in a flavorful stock if you want to make the bi-product recipe described in the introduction.

Using a mandoline, set at the finest setting, slice the trimmed artichoke hearts into a bowl and toss in the parsley leaves. Dress these with the olive oil, Verjus or lemon juice and a good pinch of salt.
