3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Freshly ground black pepper
12 baby artichokes (about 1 pound), stems trimmed
1 cup thinly sliced celery
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
Whisk oil and juice in a medium bowl. Season dressing with salt and pepper.
Working with 1 artichoke at a time, break off outer leaves until only pale-green ones remain.
Cut 1/2″ off the top; trim dark green parts around stem and heart.
Slice lengthwise very thinly and toss in dressing.
Repeat with remaining artichokes.
Mix in celery and remaining ingredients. Season with salt and pepper.
Transfer to a platter and top with cheese.
