Stuffed Artichokes with Crab Salad is a very easy meal to prepare and very delicious! Stuffed artichokes make an elegant meal served as light lunch or dinner to your family or friends. This is another one of the light meals that I like to serve on a hot summer evening.
When I saw the large artichokes stack high at the produce stand, I knew that they would make the perfect light dinner for my family as I love artichokes!
Did you know? French immigrants brought artichokes to the United States in 1806 when they settled in the Louisiana Territory. But though the first commercial artichoke fields were developed in Louisiana, by 1940 they had mysteriously disappeared. They were later established in Louisiana by French colonists and in California in the Monterey area by the Spaniards during the later 1800s.
Stuffed Artichokes with Crab Salad is a classic dish that is popular at restaurants in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Louisiana is the source of some of the tastiest lump crab meat around. This is my version of delicious stuffed artichokes using our famous Oregon Dungeness Crab.
