Recipe Swap: Artichoke Salad


I don't think this salad wanted me to make it. Monday morning I pulled out the steak for dinner. I ended up not getting home until late and we had just picked up something to eat. Yesterday I came home with the intent to make the steak and the salad and found that the steak, although sitting in the front of the fridge, was still completely frozen. Since this needed to be posted by today, I gave up on the steak and decided to make the salad without it.

It definitely wouldn't be a hearty enough salad to substitute as a meal without it though.

    • 1 cup spinach leaves, torn
    • 4 button mushrooms, sliced
    • 5 cherry tomatoes
    • 1 thin slice red onion
    • 2 marinated artichoke hearts, sliced
    • 1 tsp. olive oil
    • 1 tsp. red wine vinegar
    • 1/4 tsp. oregano
    • 1/4 tsp. rosemary
    • 1/4 tsp. minced garlic
    • 1 pinch each of sugar, salt and pepper

1. In a small bowl, combine together the ingredients for the dressing.
2. In a larger bowl, add the salad ingredients. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat.

Even without the steak, I thought this was pretty good. I'm not a huge fan of the taste of artichokes but I think if the steak had been in the salad it would have been a nice accompaniment. I do plan on making this again and the only change I'd make is to saute the mushrooms first, I'm not a big fan of uncooked mushrooms.
