Next time you eat an artichoke, make these.

What are these? These are a trio of dipping sauces that are extremely delicious when paired with those magical little globes of green. I don't have a particular recipe for any of these since I usually eyeball it, and keep adding this or that until it tastes right. Luckily, they are pretty darn near impossible to mess that adds some bonus points in an otherwise vague recipe post. ;)

Dipping Sauce #1: Balsamic Mayo

Whisk together mayo made with olive oil, a little non-fat Greek Yogurt to cut the fat, and balsamic vinegar. Transfer into small bowl.

Dipping Sauce #2: Melted Butter

Get the best quality butter possible. Melt butter in a sauce pan or microwave...which ever you fancy. Pour into small bowl.

Dipping Sauce #3: Vinaigrette

In a covered jar, pour in extra virgin olive oil, balsamic (or red wine or champagne) vinegar, spicy mustard with the seeds in it, salt, pepper - and if you want to get fancy - fresh herbs like tarragon and oregano. Shake well until incorporated, and pour into small bowl.

Well that was easy. Now go make these, eat an artichoke, and tell me which is your favorite (or your go-to dip).

  3. I love grilling artichokes! I'm all about dipping it in some balsamic mayo- yum!

  4. Can you believe I've never eaten an artichoke? Clearly this needs to be remedied immediately. Preferably with butter.
