Artichoke Heart Salad

When in a pinch for a quick meal, I will often go to the local supermarket to find something healthy to eat. Most of the time, I end up either picking up some no-filler meats, e.g. Applegate hot dogs, or the salad bar. More often than not when going for the salad bar, I end up with mixed greens, cucumber, hardboiled egg, and olive oil with salt and pepper. This was somewhat bland, but pretty satisfying, until I came across an artichoke salad. I started putting this atop mixed greens, and I haven’t gone back since.

Determined to remake this at home to save money and time, we developed the following recipe. I love how this improves as it sits in the fridge, and it is fantastic on its own or on a bed of greens. Plus, it is ready in under half an hour. This is a must-have to improve your salad game.
