Artichokes with Scallion Vinaigrette


A generous portion of bay leaves in the steaming liquid here permeates the artichoke leaves and hearts with flavor and provides an enticing aroma as you serve the dish. The scallion vinaigrette balances the sweetness of the artichokes.

  1. 1 quart water
  2. 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil
  3. 5 1/2 tablespoons wine vinegar
  4. 1 small onion, cut into thin slices
  5. 12 peppercorns
  6. 5 bay leaves
  7. 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  8. 4 large artichokes
  9. 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  10. 4 scallions including green tops, chopped
  11. 6 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  12. 1 1/4 teaspoons lemon juice
  13. 1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
  1. In a large wide stainless-steel pot, combine the water, the 2 tablespoons oil, 1 1/2 tablespoons of the vinegar, the onion, peppercorns, bay leaves, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Bring to a boil.
  2. Cut the stems off the artichokes and cut off the top third of the leaves. If you like, using scissors, cut off the tips from the remaining leaves to remove the thorns. Put the artichokes in the pot, stem ends down. Cover and bring back to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the bases of the artichokes are tender when pierced with a small knife, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove the artichokes.
  3. In a small glass or stainless-steel bowl, whisk together the mustard, the remaining 4 tablespoons vinegar, the scallions, parsley, lemon juice, the remaining 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, and the ground pepper. Add the remaining 1 cup oil slowly, whisking. Serve each artichoke with a small bowl of vinaigrette alongside for dipping.
