If you can get your hands on some fresh artichokes by all means you can use them in this salad! I never would because here in my part of the world I have to pay at least $2 per artichoke and then throw away all the tough leaves and other bits. But if you want to just google "how to prepare artichokes". There are some good tutorials around.
