Spinach & Artichoke Salad with Parmesan Vinaigrette


Inspired by the classic warm party dip, this simple salad can be served up right away or divided into small lidded containers for a week of delicious lunches. To keep the hard-boiled eggs tasting fresh, we suggest adding them to your salad just before serving or in the morning before packing your lunch to go.

4 servings


  • 1 (15 ounce) can quartered artichoke hearts

  • 1 recipe Parmesan Vinaigrette (see Associated Recipes)

  • 1 (5 ounce) package baby spinach (about 6 cups)

  • 6 hard-boiled eggs

  • ¼ cup chopped unsalted pistachios


  1. Line a sheet pan with paper towels or a clean dish towel. Drain artichokes in a wire-mesh strainer and rinse well under cold water; drain again. Arrange the artichokes in a single layer on the prepared pan (to remove moisture); set aside.

  2. Transfer 2 tablespoons vinaigrette into each of 4 small lidded containers.

  3. Divide the artichokes among 4 single-serving containers. Top each with one-fourth of the spinach. Seal the containers and refrigerate for up to 4 days.

  4. In the morning before taking your lunch to go, slice 1 1/2 hard-boiled eggs and add to the meal-prep container. Dress with the vinaigrette and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon pistachios just before serving.

To make ahead

Refrigerate salad (except hard-boiled eggs) and vinaigrette separately for up to 4 days. Top salad with sliced eggs, vinaigrette and pistachios before serving.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
