Fourth of July is the perfect occasion for enjoying delicious and fresh salads that I love serving in edible dishes, like these stuffed artichokes. Besides being an exquisite side for any grilled meat, they're also great for vegetarians. And if you skip the cheese, they're a tasty option for vegans. The artichokes can be prepared a day in advance and be ready to fill before lunch. If you use vegetables (convenient and portable), it will be much easier to prepare this dish quickly so you have more free time for the celebrations or to attend to your guests. You can add mayo to the salad as a dressing, but since it's so hot I prefer to make a light vinaigrette with fresh lime juice. You can easily multiply or divide the recipe, depending on how many guests you're expecting. Remember, if you plan in advance, everything will come out perfect and you'll be able to relax and enjoy a happy gathering with your loved ones. MORE + LESS -

  • 1
    Wash the artichokes and cut the tips off the leaves.
  • 2
    Place them in a pot of water with the limes, salt and pepper. Let boil.
  • 3
    Cook with the pot half covered until you can easily insert a knife into the artichokes, about 45 minutes.
  • 4
    Remove the artichokes from the pot and strain. Put them on a cutting board to let them cool. Remove the leaves from the center, and when you see the fibrous part of the heart, cut that out too. Your artichoke should resemble a mold ready to be filled.
  • 5
    Open the can of veggies and strain. Pour the vegetables into a bowl and combine with the gouda cheese.
  • 6
    For the vinaigrette: Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. Use this dressing on the salad.
  • 7
    Pour that salad into the center of each artichoke and decorate with oregano or parsley leaves.
  • 8
    You can keep the salad refrigerated until ready to serve.

Expert Tips

  • Use mozzarella or fontina cheese instead of gouda.
  • You can make the vinaigrette with white wine vinegar and aromatic herbs.
