Chilean Artichokes with Tuna and Celery Salad Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4


  • 6 1/2 ounces water-packed tuna, well drained
  • 8 large artichokes
  • 1 lemon, halved, and one-half cut into slices
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 hard-cooked egg, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons finely diced celery
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise, preferably homemade
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 8 lettuce leaves, patted dry
  • 1 ripe tomato, cut into 8 wedges
  • 2 tablespoons finely minced fresh parsley
How to cook Chilean Artichokes with Tuna and Celery Salad:
  • Using a sharp stainless-steel knife, trim off the artichoke stems and slice 1 inch off the top. Rub the cuts with the lemon half.
  • Place the artichokes, stem side down, in a large nonreactive pot and cover with water. Add the salt and 4 lemon slices. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and boil gently uncovered until tender, 35 to 45 minutes. To test doneness, pull a leaf out; if it comes out easily without resistance, the artichoke is done. Drain the artichokes upside down in a colander or on a rack.
  • When cool enough to handle, discard all the green leaves, scraping off and saving all the edible parts in a small bowl. Scoop out the fuzzy choke with a small spoon. Trim the bottom to a nice round shape.
  • Combine the tuna, onion, celery, and reserved artichoke pieces in a medium bowl. Add the mayonnaise and black pepper; toss gently with a fork. Adjust the seasoning.
  • Stuff the artichoke bottoms with the tuna and celery salad. Arrange the lettuce on a serving platter. Place the stuffed artichokes on top of the lettuce, and garnish with the tomato wedges and parsley.
