Shaved Artichoke Salad with Parsley and Parmesan

For this fresh and nutty spring salad, we sliced the artichoke hearts with a mandolin (get our instructions for how to prepare an artichoke heart). As you work, transfer hearts to a large bowl of water with the juice of one lemon to prevent discoloration.) You can also slice thinly with a sharp knife; use a vegetable peeler to shave the Parmesan.
