Notes
1) I used jarred artichoke hearts in this recipe. You can also use canned or freshly cooked artichoke hearts in this salad.
2) Add white black pepper to taste.
3) Tastes even better the next day once the flavors have had time to marinate.
4) Adjust cilantro based on taste (I like this salad with 4 sprigs of fresh cilantro).
