Poivrade Artichoke Salad

Poivrade Artichoke Salad

"Poivrade" artichokes are the small purple ones, often eaten raw in salads.

Choose the smallest ones, as they are the tenderest and have practically no fibrous "choke".

For this recipe, they are combined as a salad with herbs, spring onion and Parmesan shavings in an olive oil and lemon dressing.

Remarks

Raw artichokes usually turn brown (oxidise) very rapidly, so you need to protect them from the air as soon as they are peeled. That is why we plunge them in water with lemon juice in this recipe. Later, they are mixed with the dressing quickly.

For a more leomny flavour, grate a little zest over the bowl.
