Cook the Issue 2010: Shaved baby artichokes with lemon and parmesan

My fun-with-artichokes continues with this light, fresh salad.  I could not find arugula in my local markets, which cater more to the Latino-Polish-Middle Eastern inhabitants of my (vibrant!) neighborhood.  That's okay, I wouldn't trade in the caliente tortillas, Polish chocolates, and other ethnic goodies I can get at these markets for all the arugula in California.  But enough about my market, how about this salad.  Well, I loved it, even with plain green leaf lettuce-- the bright lemony dressing and the complex flavors of the artichokes accented by the Parmesan cheese made for a really excellent salad.  Also, the simplicity of the salad dressing allowed us to taste the artichokes.  Another winner!
