Prep time 10mins
Cook time 45mins
Serves or Makes: 4


  • 4 Artichokes
  • 1 Lemon cut into quarters
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 5 teaspoons Olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Apple cider vinegar
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • A handful of chives


  • Step 1

    Prepare your artichokes by cutting the stalks and remove the hard outer leaves. Rub the outer of the artichoke with the lemon to stop it browning.

  • Step 2

    In a large pot put the artichokes, lemon and cover with cold water. Put a lid or a plate upside-down on the top so the artichokes stay immersed. Cook for 45 minutes – drain and let cool.

  • Step 3

    In a jar add all the other ingredients. Put a lid on and shake well until blended. Keep in the fridge until serving.

  • Step 4

    Cut the artichokes in half and remove the “hairy” leaf in the middle. Serve each with an individual portion of the dressing.
