Summer Artichoke Salad

Summer Artichoke Salad

Hi all!

As we all know -> Summertime = salad time.

A salad on a hot day is light, refreshing and nutritious. As you will see from this post, it was the perfect addition to my BBQ lunch in the sunshine!

Enjoy xo Elyse

Ingredients:

  • Fresh lettuce
  • Tinned artichoke hearts
  • Green beans
  • Small potatoes
  • Cucumber
  • Balsamic Vinegar Dressing
  • Asparagus

Step 1:

  • Chop the cucumber, cut the potatoes in half, and cut the asparagus

*a tip for the asparagus is to bend it and where it snaps is where you will break off the bit you don’t want*

Step 2:

  • Cook the potatoes, beans, and asparagus
  • – I would suggest the potatoes to be cooked in the microwave for 6 mins. (Until soft), the beans and asparagus take approx. 3-5 mins each (depending on the amount cooked)

Step 3:

  • Whilst cooking (as above) – put the lettuce and cucumber into the salad bowl
  • Once ready, add the beans and potatoes
  • Mix this all together

Step 4:

  • Drain the artichoke from the tin and add it to the salad

Step 5:

  • Pour the balsamic vinegar dressing over the salad, add a few grinds of salt and pepper, and then mix again

Step 6:

  • You can add the asparagus to the salad or serve up on the side
  • As you will see here, I have served it on the side as the salad was looking full already

Step 7:

  • Serve up!
  • I recommend this as a salad you can have on its own, or even as a side to your main meal. Oh and don’t forget the wine – a nice drop of rosé is always key!
