PREPARATION

1.Bring 4-quarts salted water to a boil and drop in the shrimp. Wait 1 minute; empty the pot into a colander set in the sink. Let the shrimp cool in the colander.
2.Bring a second pot of salted water to a boil and drop in the broccoli florets. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until stems are just tender; do not overcook. Remove florets from water with a slotted spoon or skimmer and drop into a bowl of ice water. This will stop the cooking process and set the brilliant green color. When broccoli is cool, drain well and reserve.
3.Cut the artichokes into halves or quarters, depending on their size, and combine in a mixing bowl with the shrimp, broccoli and scallions.
4.Add sherry mayonnaise, toss, season with salt and pepper to taste, and toss again. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Sherry Mayonnaise (2 1/2 cups)
This richly flavored mayonnaise complements combinations like the Smoked Turkey Salad, but it is also delicious on simple fare as a chicken sandwich on white bread. We have also served it as a dip for crudités or cold seafood with great success.
1.Combine whole egg, egg yolks, mustard and vinegar in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Process for 1 minute.
2.With the motor still running, dribble in the oil in a slow steady stream.
3.When oil is completely incorporated, shut off machine, scrape down sides of bowl, taste mayonnaise and correct seasoning. Transfer to storage container, cover, and refrigerate until ready to use.
