Commonly used in warm braises, artichokes are just as delicious served cold. We've added them to a light but filling lentil salad for a fresh way to enjoy the vegetable during the summer months. This mildly flavoured dish is the perfect introduction to the artichoke for first-timers.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 large artichokes trimmed, halved, cooked and cooled
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups lightly packed baby arugula
  • 1 cup canned lentils drained and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme

Method

Cut artichokes lengthwise into 1/2-inch thick slices. Set aside.

In large bowl, whisk together oil, egg yolk, lemon juice, mustard and salt. Add artichokes, arugula, lentils and thyme; gently toss to coat.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: How to trim an artichoke
Trim the top third, and peel off the thick outer leaves (called bracts). Using a vegetable peeler, remove the outer layer of the base and the stem. Halve the artichoke lengthwise, and rub the cut sides with lemon juice to prevent browning. Let stand in a bowl of ice water with a squeeze of lemon juice while trimming any additional artichokes.
