White bean and artichoke salad

52 Cookbooks #23: White bean and artichoke salad

This week my recipe comes from Hugh's River Cottage Veg Everyday, and I must say the front cover features a very smart and neatly barbered Mr F-W. I'm a big HFW fan but I think the longer-haired version is more in keeping with his character!

This is a lovely summery salad. It could be a main, but I chose to serve it as a side dish alongside BBQ-ed sausages and it worked a treat.

The recipe calls for artichokes in oil, but I tend to buy them tinned as they last longer in our cupboard that way, and are a useful thing to have in your store cupboard as they're quite at home on a handmade pizza.

So they had some colour I fried them ahead of softening the garlic in oil and they ended up with some lovely chargrilled bits. Yum.

This is a bit of a tin openers dream recipe but that also means it's quick and easy to do and therefore I'm likely to do it again!
