Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Number of Servings: 8
Cups of Fruits and Vegetables Per Person: 1.50

Ingredients:

Salad
8 medium artichokes, prepared and cooked as directed for whole artichokes
3 red bell peppers
lettuce leaves
1/2 cup sliced red onion
1/2 cup sliced black olives
Dressing
1 bell pepper (roasted), reserved from salad preparation
1/3 cup Balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup white wine or cider vinegar
2 cloves , minced
1 Tbsp chopped fresh basil or 1 tsp crushed dried basil
1 tsp chopped fresh or 1/2 tsp crushed dried

Directions:

Salad
Halve artichokes lengthwise; scoop out center petals and fuzzy centers. Remove outer leaves and reserve to garnish salad, or to use for snacks another time. Trim out hearts and slice thinly. Cover and set aside. Place whole bell peppers under preheated broiler; broil under high heat until charred on all sides, turning frequently with tongs. Remove from oven; place in a paper bag for 15 minutes to steam skins. Trim off stems of peppers; remove seeds and ribs. Strip off skins; slice peppers into julienne strips. Reserve 1/4 of the bell pepper strips to prepare dressing. To assemble salads, arrange lettuce leaves on 8 salad plates. Arrange sliced artichoke hearts, remaining bell pepper strips, red onion and olive slices on lettuce. Garnish with a couple of cooked artichoke leaves, if desired.
Dressing
For dressing, in blender or food processor container place reserved bell pepper strips, vinegars, garlic, basil, rosemary and sugar. Cover and process until well blended and nearly smooth. Spoon dressing over salads.
