This salad has all those elements in it, along with just 5 basic ingredients and fresh tasting too. My inspiration for this salad is:
I have recently discovered that artichoke hearts have very few calories in them along with being quite tasty. A friend of mine mentioned to me that she likes to throw mint into her salads which I have never tried before. And I was reading my mother-in-law’s Sunset Magazine. Put all those together and this salad was created.
1 head romaine lettuce (torn or cut into bite size)
5 to 7 sprigs fresh mint (chopped into bite size)
Parmesan cheese (grated) about 1/4 cup
12 to 15 bottled artichoke hearts (drained, rinsed, and chopped into bite size)
sea salt and ground pepper to taste
1. Prepare the first 4 ingredients and put into a salad bowl.
2. Squeeze juice from the lemon over salad.
3. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the salad.
4. Toss and serve.
