I need to change things up from my normal mayo, dill, and lemon sauce. Ideas?
I like a lemon garlic aioli with a dash of cayenne(I know..you've been there, done that), curried mayo (love) and bagna cauda.
Bagna cauda sounds like a great idea for artichokes -- I will have to try that.
Melted butter mixed with lemon juice.
I like them Roman style---although they are not for dipping. You trim all the tough parts off down to the tender leaves, clean out the choke peel the stem and eat almost the whole thing with olive oil, mint, parsley and lemon.
I like plain mayo, plain melted butter, or plain lemon, squeezed over.
Fresh lemon juice, nothing else.
With a hot steamed artichoke, melted butter with a squeeze of lemon (sometimes a dash of Tabasco too.) If the artichoke is served chilled, a good mustardy vinaigrette.
Melted salted butter, or mayonnaise.
Chermoula is really good with artichokes. April Bloomfield's lemon-caper dressing is also great: https://food52.com/recipes...
Other tart, herby sauces are good too, like Green Goddess dressing (I like the recipe from Gwyneth Paltrow, although I find the source a little embarrassing).
