All Easy Recipes. Cook all that you can cook. Corsican Artichoke - Fennel Salad
On France's Mediterranean island of Corsica, noted for its rugged beauty and individualistic cookery, characteristic salads are made with flavorful, locally grown vegetables. Two of the best are the globe artichoke, a member of the daisy family and an aristocratic relative of the humble thistle, which has an appealing, nutlike flavor; and aromatic fennel, which has an anise flavor. They combine to make an interesting salad. If available, use fresh instead of frozen artichokes
