Dipping Sauce for Artichokes

"A boyfriend's mother taught me this great dipping sauce for artichokes and asparagus. It's somewhat like aioli. Replace dried basil for fresh, and garlic salt for the garlic. If you do use dried basil, cut the original amount in half. Use low-fat mayonnaise if you like."

So, this is a quick aioli. I didn't have eggs, so found this. This is a great quick fix! My additions: added a lot more garlic and added 2 tbsp. of white wine. I also used parsley. It depen...

Loved it - loved it more with a dash of tabasco.

I followed the recipe as written and we were not huge fans. It was not terrible, but I didn't like it enough to use it for my entire artichoke. I cannot pinpoint exactly why we didn't like it;...

I really loved this, added more lemon and just a dash of the worcestershire and dried basil on hand. I really enjoyed it and will use this again. I would love to try greek yogurt for lower fa...

I made this tonight. So yummy. I was out of lemon but had lime so I used that. Plus I didn't have fresh basil so I used dried basil. Turned out great.
