Quick Steamed Artichokes with Lemon Dip
COOK TIME: 10 Minutes
PREP TIME: 10 Minutes
MAKES: 2 - 4 Servings
2 DOLE® Artichokes
1 tablespoon water (15 mL)
½ cup mayonnaise (125 mL)
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel (5 mL)
2 tablespoons lemon juice (30 mL)
1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard (5 mL)
2 to 3 dashes hot sauce
Cut off stems and remove a few bottom leaves of artichokes. Slice off top third and discard. Trim leaf tips, if desired.
Place artichokes, stem-side up, in large microwave-safe bowl; add water. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, venting one edge for steam to escape. Microwave on HIGH 8 to 10 minutes or until just tender and outer leaves pull out easily. Let stand, covered, until cool enough to handle.
Cut artichokes in quarters; discard inner prickly purple leaves and choke.
Whisk together mayonnaise, lemon peel and juice, mustard and hot sauce. Serve as a dip with artichokes.
