Serves 4 people.




Ingredients:
  • ½ cup California wild rice
  • 1 ½ cups chicken stock
  • 4 medium globe artichokes
  • 2 cups diced cooked chicken                                                           (about 9 ounces)
  • 1 large celery stalk, diced
  • 1 medium red apple, diced
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons minced tarragon                                                      (or 2 teaspoons dried)
  • 3 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Pinch sugar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
Cooking Instructions:

Bring wild rice and stock to a boil in a medium saucepan. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until kernels just puff open, 45 to 50 minutes. Drain if necessary and transfer to a bowl. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled.

Meanwhile, bring 3 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot. Trim stems, lower leaves and tops from artichokes. Add 1 tablespoon salt and artichokes to water. Reduce to a gentle simmer, cover and cook until a petal near the center pulls out easily, 20 to 30 minutes. Drain and cool completely. Halve each artichoke lengthwise, scraping out the fuzzy choke. Set halves aside.

Add chicken, celery, apple, scallion and tarragon to wild rice. In a small bowl, whisk oil, vinegar, mustard and sugar until combined.

Pour over rice mixture and toss well. Season with salt and pepper and divide mixture over artichoke halves.
