Ingredients

  • 12 baby artichokes, outer leaves removed and stems trimmed, soaked in acidulated water
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 pound Mortadella, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 heads frisee or chicory, washed and spun dry
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 6 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 wedge Parmigiano-Reggiano, about 1/2 pound

Directions

In a 12 to 14-inch saute pan, heat olive oil until smoking. Add onion and garlic and saute until just softened, about 4 minutes. Add Mortadella and stir until lightly browned, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add frisee, thyme and balsamic vinegar and toss until just wilted, about 45 to 60 seconds. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper and divide among 4 plates. Shave Parmesan cheese over each salad using a vegetable peeler and serve warm.
