Steamed artichokes go perfectly with this zesty, rich artichoke dipping sauce. It only requires 7 basic ingredients and takes a few minutes to prepare.
Is it just me, or is the sauce that goes with artichokes a big part of the enjoyment? Our family has recently been enjoying this recipe for artichoke dipping sauce.
The vibrant, nutty artichoke leaves and heart pair beautifully with the creamy, rich, and tangy sauce.
It only requires 7 ingredients, one of which is pepper, is simple to prepare, and it cooks artichokes in a fraction of the time. While they steam, unwind and prepare the artichoke dipping sauce just before you eat.
Ingredients for the Artichoke Dipping Sauce Recipe
To make this meal, you just need 7 basic ingredients:
- Make sure to use really good mayonnaise since you can taste it in this recipe. The Vegan Mayo, Avocado Oil Mayo, and Classic Mayo from Sir Kensington’s are my favorites. This could also use my vegan mayo!
- Greek yogurt: It gives the sauce a pleasantly tangy flavor and makes it thick and creamy.
- Who doesn’t enjoy artichokes and lemon juice? It gives this meal great brightness.
- For added acidity, use Dijon mustard.
- Garlic should be finely grated (I use my Microplane zester) to ensure a smooth sauce integration.
- Yes, black pepper is just pepper. I think this sauce doesn’t need more salt because the mayo is already salty. You can salt to taste if you’d like.
- Chives – To balance the sauce’s garlicky, oniony flavor.
In a small bowl, combine the mayo, Greek yogurt, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, garlic, and pepper. Whisk until combined. Chives should be used as garnish.
How to Serve Artichoke Dipping Sauce
Most typically, I serve this dipping sauce with steamed globe artichokes; learn my method for preparing them here!
To consume, remove the artichoke leaves one at a time, dunk them in the sauce, and use your teeth to scrape off the flesh and sauce. The artichoke stem and heart are very delicious when paired with this sauce.
Don’t panic if you run out of artichokes before you run out of sauce. This dish also works great as a sauce or dip for other vegetables.
Serve it with air fryer cauliflower, air fryer French fries, or baked sweet potato fries for dipping, or drizzle it over grilled asparagus, roasted broccoli, or Brussels sprouts. It can last up to 4 days if kept in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
