When I was a kid vis­it­ing my grand­par­ents in the French coun­try­side, we often had arti­choke vinai­grette for din­ner. I used to think it was so much fun to detach the leaves of the arti­choke and dip them in the vinai­grette! Plus, it was extra spe­cial to get to the fuzzy cen­ter of the arti­choke, remove it, and enjoy the spe­cial treat of eat­ing the heart under­neath. Arti­choke vinai­grette is healthy, super easy to make, and fun!

Recipe

This is a super easy recipe. Just cook the arti­choke, and make the vinai­grette! I per­son­al­ly like to steam the arti­choke in a food steam­er.

  3. Eat the arti­choke hot. Pull off the out­er leaves, one at a time. Dip the white fleshy end in the vinai­grette. Place dipped end in your mouth, and pull through your teeth to remove fleshy end (which is the part that you eat). Dis­card the rest of the leaf. Con­tin­ue until all the leaves are removed. When you get to the inner leaves with the pur­ple tips, you can remove them all at once. With a knife, scrape out the ined­i­ble fuzzy part cov­er­ing the heart. Cut the heart into pieces, dip in the vinai­grette, and enjoy!
