3 vegetable, 2 fat
3 package frozen artichoke hearts (thawed)
1/4 cup canola oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice (from about 1 lemon)
1 1/2 teaspoons no-sodium Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups finely sliced basil leaves
2 Tbsp chopped black olives
1/4 cup sliced red onion
1 seeded, chopped red bell pepper
1 medium tomato (chopped)
Prepare the artichoke hearts: Add artichoke hearts to a heavy-duty medium pot with 3 cups water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat to medium-high, and let artichokes simmer until fully cooked and warm, about 5 minutes. Drain artichokes in a colander and run cold water over them to cool. Drain very thoroughly.
Meanwhile, in a large serving bowl, add oil, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, mustard, salt, and pepper. Whisk together with a fork.
Into the bowl, add artichoke hearts into the dressing. Stir to combine.
Add remaining ingredients into the bowl: sliced basil leaves, chopped olives, onion, chopped bell pepper, and chopped tomato. Stir together to combine. Serve immediately or chill in the refrigerator for a few hours and serve.
Cooking Tip: No time to thaw the artichoke hearts? Just cook them a little longer—up to 5 more minutes of simmering time.
Keep it Healthy: Using frozen artichoke hearts versus the marinated canned ones cuts down on a tremendous amount of sodium.
Tip: Finely chopping the artichokes, along with the other ingredients, turns this into a divine yet healthy dip to serve with pita chips.
