This artichoke dipping sauce is my favorite! It turns even the pickiest eater into a steamed artichoke lover and is made with ingredients that you probably already have on hand - Like magic!


  • 2 large artichokes
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise or greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespooon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Using a sharp knife, cut about 1-inch off the top of the artichoke. Cut off the stem.
  2. Place artichokes stem side up in a steamer basket or rack. This allows the steam to fall out of the artichoke as it cooks.
  3. Allow to steam for 45 minutes - 1 hour.
  4. Meanwhile, make the dipping sauce by combining all the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Serve alongside the steamed artichokes.
