Artichoke Dipping Sauce- Mayo Version

Mayo Artichoke DipI love cooking and baking and do both fairly well, so I’m used to receiving food requests from friends and family.  On weekend mornings there is clamoring for cinnamon rolls or scones.  During tv-based events there are requests for espinaca or homemade potato skins.  However, the other week I was surprised by a request our 15 year old daughter had.  “When can we have artichokes with dinner again?”

A teenager requesting vegetables. What a delightful occurrence!  I can’t complain; our kids are well-rounded eaters that will try almost everything and don’t wrinkle their noses at vegetables.  However, I was surprised that I didn’t know that she enjoyed artichokes.  I try to take note of the kids’ favorite veggies and intersperse them with the less-desired varieties.  Regardless, apparently I had forgotten but wanted to quickly rectify the situation.  So, last week I served a please everyone dinner:  steak, coconut rice, and artichokes.

As I prepped for dinner, I began to consider what to serve with the artichokes.  I remember my mom dipping the leaves in mayonnaise.  However, no one in our house enjoys plain mayonnaise that much. . .although, mayonnaise could be a great base for a dipping sauce with more flavor.  The kids and my husband enjoyed this dip immensely.  Mayonnaise-based dip isn’t my thing, so be sure to return next week to learn what I used!
