16 -20 ounces
fresh artichoke hearts
( can used frozen or jarred artichoke hearts but they mustn't be marinated)
clove garlic crushed with salt
( DO NOT omit!)
ground middle eastern red pepper
( read recipe intro^^)
fresh cilantro, minced
- Note: I used fresh baby artichoke hearts from Trader Joes. Personally I would not recommend canned but frozen will work.They were stripped of their outer leaves then steamed until tender. The artichokes were then drained and set aside to cool before adding the dressing.
- Whisk the dressing together in a non-reactive bowl and set aside.
- Cut the prepared artichoke hearts in half or quarters, depending on size. Arrange the artichoke hearts on a serving platter.
- Drizzle the dressing over the artichoke hearts. Marinate at least 1 hour. Serve at *room temperature*. When ready to serve, garnish with the fresh cilantro.
- Servings are estimated.
