Quick and Easy!
- 4 fresh artichokes, steamed and cut into quarters
- 1 (8.5-oz) jar Bella Sun Luci sun dried tomatoes, Halves or Julienne Cut, drained, reserving olive oil
- 2 lemons, cut into wedges
- 1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
- Cut off or trim end of artichoke stem.
- Slice 3/4 inch off the top of the artichoke. If desired, snip the thorny tips off of each of the leaves with kitchen scissors.
- Wash artichokes, taking care to shake out excess water so they will not be soggy when steamed.
- Place in a vegetable steamer, covered, over boiling water. Steam for 35 to 45 minutes, depending on size. The artichokes are ready when one of the outer leaves can easily be removed.
- Allow artichokes to cool to room temperature. Cut into quarters and arrange on a platter with drained sun dried tomatoes, reserving olive oil for vinaigrette.
- Top with lemon wedges for garnish. Drizzle with vinaigrette (see Bella's Sunny Artichoke Salad Vinaigrette Recipe). Top with freshly grated parmesan cheese.
