I made up this recipe for a baby shower recently. I wanted the flavor of marinated artichoke hearts, but didn’t have a way to conveniently fuss with a hot dip. All of the recipes I could find were for hot dip and, although it is one of my favorite things in the world, I just didn’t have a way to do it for this party.
Enter…the food processor. Enjoy!
Aunt LoLo’s Cold Marinated Artichoke Heart Dip
In the bowl of a food processor, fitted with a blade, combine:
2 cups mayonnaise
16 marinated artichoke heart quarters
Pulse or blend until the artichokes are finely chopped and the mixture looks dip-able. Season with salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste.
Remove the dip to a bowl with a lid (preferably a non-plastic one, so it doesn’t leave its scent behind) and refrigerate overnight for best flavor.
Best served ice cold. (It just tastes better. Go figure!)
Tastes great with veggies or crackers.
