A simple mixture of toasted walnuts and sherry vinegar provides a rich, yet good-for-you dip for the artichoke leaves. Remove the leaves and dip into walnut vinaigrette, using your teeth to scrape the meat found on the inside of the artichoke leaf. Make sure to remove the fuzzy choke from the center of the artichoke before eating the heart.
Here’s a dish I enjoyed a lot growing up. It’s a very simple Dau Sot Ca Chua recipe that is my comfort food. As a kid I ate this a lot, but never even considered the work my parents or grandma would put into making this. It would kind of just appear during dinner time (I appreciate it much more now!).
