This delicious artichoke salad is full of marinated artichokes, lettuce, and more all topped with a delicious Italian seasoned dressing.
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.
4 cups arugula
Parmesan cheese (grated) about 1/4 cup
12 to 15 bottled artichoke hearts (drained, rinsed, and chopped into bite size)
1 cup grape tomatoes, halves
2 TBS virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
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.
