Our Fried Artichoke Salad is by far our most popular salad and has quickly become one of the items we are most known for. The tangy goat cheese and balsamic vinaigrette cuts through and offers a refreshing zest. The addition of the fried artichokes adds a certain decadence, so you feel like you are getting more than just some leaves on a plate. Create this delicious salad at home for your next dinner party!
What you’ll need:
*4 spears of asparagus
*kosher salt and black pepper
*crumbled goat cheese
*1/4 cup of shelled pistachios
First, pan fry 6 whole artichoke hearts and begin roasting the asparagus in the EVOO, adding dashes of the kosher salt and black pepper as it roasts. While the artichoke hearts and asparagus continue roasting, make a bed of spring mix in a bowl.
Once the asparagus and artichokes are roasted to perfection, top the spring mix with the artichokes and asparagus, crumbled goat cheese, and the shelled pistachios. The final touches are added with a drizzling of balsamic vinaigrette, and there you have it – the perfect artichoke salad. Your friends will be impressed. I promise.
