I almost didn't make this since some of the reviews were below average. I thought it was perfect!!! I could not find the sprouted beans and I LOVED the artichokes in this! I'm a huge artichoke lover though. I used white wine vinegar and I have to admit I completely forgot to add the fresh herbs at the end. I had tarragon and chives sitting on my cutting board, sadly, not used :-( Tasted great anyway though and can't wait to make again with the herbs!!
