Prepare the artichoke for boiling. Cut approximately 1 & 1/2 inches off of the top. This allows you to trim the smaller leaves in one smooth step. Proceed with snipping off any other thorns on the larger leaves with scissors. This step is not necessary but makes enjoying your artichoke a heck-of-alot safer ;)
Cut the Artichoke in half. You can do this before or after boiling.
Place each half face down on the grill. This step should be measured on temperature of grill as well as personal preference but I typically grill my artichoke for about 15 minutes. Alternate between face down and face up to get an even flavor and texture all around.
Serve and enjoy!
1/4 cup of Mayonnaise
2 TBS Balsamic Vinegar
