  • 4 large artichokes
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Start by prepping the artichokes. Cut off the top third of each artichoke and remove the tough outer leaves until you reach the tender inner leaves. Cut off the stem and trim the bottom of each artichoke to create a flat base.
  2. Boil the artichokes in salted water for 20-25 minutes until tender. Drain and let them cool.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Brush the mixture generously over the artichokes, making sure to get in between the leaves.
  4. In another bowl, mix together parsley, cilantro, garlic, red onion, red wine vinegar, red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper.
  5. Grill the artichokes on medium-high heat for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Once they're lightly charred, remove them from the grill and let them cool for a few minutes.
  6. Use a spoon to remove the choke (the fuzzy part) from the center of the artichoke. Then, spoon the chimichurri mixture over the artichokes, making sure to get it in between the leaves.
  7. Serve the grilled artichokes warm or at room temperature, with extra chimichurri sauce on the side for dipping.
