Springtime salad 🌱

Spring has arrived. With flowers, wild garlic and artichokes. I love artichokes. I love the ritual of removing the petals. Dipping them and biting into the succulent meat. One after another. And finally reaching the delightful heart. Poetry on a plate.

Clean and trim artichokes by removing the thorny tips from the leaves. Quarter and char in a hot pan. Add some water and steam until soft.

Clean salad greens. I used baby leaves of wild garlic, watercress, red Swiss chard, parsley and red lettuce. Drizzle with a dressing consisting of olive oil, apple cider vinegar, orange juice, mustard, black pepper and fleur de sel.

Arrange artichoke quarters and salad on a plate. Drizzle the artichokes with dressing and decorate with yellow and white viola petals.

  2. It’s not really self explanatory, is it? Were you able to prepare it? At least you know how now, right?!
