  1. 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  2. 2 1/2 pounds smallest baby artichokes (about 35)
  3. 1 medium shallot, finely chopped
  4. 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  5. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  6. 2 cups shaved Parmesan cheese (about 2 ounces)
  1. Stir 3 tablespoons of the lemon juice into a bowl of water. Working with 1 artichoke at a time, pull off the dark outer leaves and trim 1/2 inch off the top. Peel the stem. Halve the artichoke, slice it thinly lengthwise and add to the water.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the shallot into the remaining 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Whisk in the oil in a thin stream and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Drain the artichokes well and toss them with the dressing. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with the Parmesan.
