Trim stems from artichokes and gently boil in 3 quarts water (salt, oil, lemon juice and other seasonings may be added to water, if desired) for 20 - 30 minutes or until petal near center of artichoke pulls out easily. Drain & cool completely.

Remove outside petals from each artichoke, spreading them on individual serving plates to form a flower effect. Scrape fuzzy choke out of each artichoke and discard. Dice artichoke hearts and add to salad mixture.

In separate bowl, combine all dressing ingredients; blend well. Evenly divide salad mixture and place in center of artichoke petals.
