Fresh spring salad with artichokes and apple slices. Nice to know Artichokes are large scaly flower buds from a species of thistles. The delicacy dates back to the Egyptians and Romans and, until the 18th century, consuming artichokes was regarded as a sign of wealth. The taste is soft yet slightly bitter. The artichoke also looks very elaborate when presented on a plate. Treat your guests with a spring dish!
