Artichoke Salad with Pecorino Romano Cheese, Pine Nuts and Lemon Vinaigrette

Artichoke Salad with Pecorino Romano Cheese, Pine Nuts and Lemon Vinaigrette


While the rest of the country is still deep in snow and cold, we here in San Diego are having unusually warm weather. It’s been in 80’s last 3 days and it feels like the summer is already here. Because of the glorious weather, I decided to make something light and refreshing for lunch the other day. This salad is a flavor explosion in a bowl! Peppery arugula, earthy artichoke hearts, salty Pecorino Romano cheese, and mildly sweet, nutty pine nuts. The zesty lemon vinaigrette is a great dressing to compliment the flavors and brighten it up a bit with the citrus. Perfect to serve with grilled chicken or turkey!
