Orange and Artichokes. Some like it raw!

Last Friday we really enjoyed shopping at the local market, where we found just amazing fragrant and sweet oranges and some fresh and delicious artichokes called “Violetto di Sicilia”. With few simple ingredients (but you need them to be absolutely good, fresh and…in season) you can make a very tasty (raw and vegetarian) appetizer, in a more interesting version of a traditional artichoke Carpaccio, seasoned with orange juice and honey…yummy!!!

Carpaccio di Carciofi con vinaigrette al miele e all’arancia, Parmigiano     Artichokes Carpaccio with honey and orange vinaigrette, Parmesan leaves

For 4 Servings

3 very fresh artichokes

lemon

1 orange (juice)

honey, salt, pepper

extra virgin olive oil

parmesan

Cleanse the artichokes removing leaves until it’s soft. Cut the end, remove the stem, and cut the artichoke in half. make the same for all the artichokes left.

Put them in a bowl with water and lemon juice (this way they will not turn black).

Slice the artichokes thinly, season them with salt, pepper, olive oil and a vinaigrette made with orange juice and honey.

Add some Parmesan leaves and serve them immediately!
