The Etiquette Grrls' Recipe for Artichoke Dip
1 can artichoke hearts (not the marinated kind,
the ones packed in water), drained
Mayonnaise (regular Hellmann's, not the low-fat/ low-cal kind)
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 cup grated Parmesan Cheese (or a parmesan/ mozzarella/ provolone
blend, which you can buy premixed at the grocer's!)
1/2 package chopped spinach (optional)
Crusty bread and/ or Carr's crackers
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Chop artichoke hearts in the Cuisinart, or mash
them up with the back of a fork. Don't chop them too finely--it's
better if the dip has some Fairly Sizable Artichoke Chunks in it.
Place artichokes in bowl; mix in 2 or 3 Good Dollops
of mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic, cheese, and spinach (if using).
Is the dip creamy? If not, add more mayo.
Turn into a small casserole dish. Bake for about
20-25 minutes, or until dip is bubbly, and golden-brown around the
Serve with crackers and/ or bread. Smile politely
when praised by Your Guests!
