Artichoke and Toasted Walnut Salad

Added by: on Jan 4th, 2011
Because the choke is undeveloped, once you remove the tough outer leaves from baby artichokes, you only need to simmer them for about 20 minutes and you can eat them whole—hot with olive oil or butter, or cold in a salad. Toasted walnuts or pecans make a delightful contrast of flavor and texture. .. more >

If using baby artichokes, prepare as shown. If using large artichokes, prepare as shown for artichoke bottoms. Put the artichokes in a nonaluminum pot with plenty of water to cover and bring to a gentle simmer. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a paring knife poked into one of the artichokes goes through with just slight resistance.


Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350°F. Spread the nuts on a sheet pan and toast in the oven, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes, or until they are fragrant and have taken on color. Pour onto a plate and let cool.


Drain the artichokes. If you are using large artichokes, remove the chokes and cut into wedges. Immediately toss the artichokes with the walnut oil, vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste. Just before serving, toss in the nuts (don't toss them in ahead of time or they will lose their crunch). This salad, except for adding the nuts, can be made 2 days in advance.

The combination of marinated and raw artichokes gives a fantastic contrast of flavor and texture in this salad. If you like, you can add some split chile peppers (with or without seeds, depending on how spicy you like them) to the marinade to give it an extra kick. The boys in the kitchen always do this for my wife, Plaxy, because it is her favorite way of eating artichokes. In winter, when you ..

This is definitely a Summertime favorite! Make this salad with summer tomatoes…the best! Toasting the bread adds a little crunch to the salad as well as a delicious nuttiness that pairs well with an array of summer dishes…we love it with Summer Rubbed Chicken, Grilled Basil Butter Corn & Skinny Balsamic Onion Salad…a great, quick Summer meal!
