artichoke appetizer

I love this bruschetta topping. It is super easy, and healthy! I like to serve this on whole grain crackers or whole grain crostini.


  • 1 tin (14oz) artichoke hearts, drained and squeezed out
  • 2 tbsp chopped capers
  • 2 handfuls of arugula, chopped finely
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp minced red onion
  • Juice of half a lemon (about 2 tbsp)
  • Freshly ground pepper


  1. Using a knife, chop the artichokes finely. Transfer to a medium sized bowl.
  2. Stir in the olive oil, capers, arugula and red onion.
  3. Season to taste with plenty of freshly ground coarse black pepper. Serve on whole grain crackers or crostini (Note: nutritional value does not include crackers).

Makes about 2 cups
Serves 15
