David Rocco's Raw Artichoke Salad Recipe

House Home Photo David Rocco's Raw Artichoke Salad Recipe

From the book David Rocco's Dolce Vita by the Food Network star, this fresh Italian salad of artichokes and cheese is a delicious fall or winter starter.

4 servings

4 artichokes
Juice of 1 lemon
5 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Shavings Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese


Step 1: Remove all tough external leaves from the artichokes. Discard the stem.

Step 2: Cut the artichokes in half lengthwise. Lay them cut side down on a chopping board and slice them crosswise as thinly as possible.

Step 3: Place the slices in a bowl and season immediately with lemon juice, olive oil, and salt and pepper. Put them on a serving plate and finish with shavings of Parmigiano cheese.

Alternate idea: Toast some bread to make crostini. Top with the artichoke salad and shave the Parmigiano over top.
