Marinated Artichokes and Red Peppers

Ernest Hemingway's favorite vegetable was the artichoke. He mentions artichokes in "Across the River and Into the Trees," thinking they have aphrodisiac qualities. Easy to make and wonderful to eat with crusty bread and cheese, try these for yourself.

1/2 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon whole-grain Dijon mustard
9-ounce package frozen artichoke hearts, thawed, drained well, halved lengthwise
1 large red pepper, cut into thin strips

Whisk first six ingredients in a large bowl to blend. Add vegetables. Toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.
