Fresh artichokes and fava beans take time to trim and shell, but they’re well worth the effort when you can find them at farmers’ markets in early summer. Frozen artichoke hearts and fava beans will also work in this recipe when the veggies are no longer in season.
To make Rosemary Vinaigrette: Whisk together lemon juice and olive oil in large bowl. Whisk in onion, rosemary, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper, and set aside.
To make Salad: Bring large pot of salted water to a boil. Add fava beans, and cook 3 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon, and rinse under cold water. Drain, and keep warm. Add artichokes and lemon half to boiling water. Simmer 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain well. Add artichokes and fava beans to vinaigrette in bowl.
Stir in bell pepper, fennel, tomatoes, and pine nuts. Season with salt and pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.
