White Bean Salad with Asparagus and Artichokes

If you run into baby artichokes in your market, be sure to grab them. Although a little labor-intensive to prepare, they are delicious in this vegetarian bean salad. If you don't have baby artichokes, you can use fresh artichoke bottoms or, in a real pinch, canned hearts.
