Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1/4 cup light miracle whip (or mayo if you prefer)
    1/4 cup coarsely chopped basil
    1 clove garlic
    1 tsp grated lemon peel
    4 tbsp lemon juice
    2 tsp dijon mustard
    1/2 tbsp extra light olive oil
    3 medium artichokes

Directions

1. Cut artichokes in half lengthwise. Trim any sharp leaves and clean out the fuzz around the heart.
2. In a large heavy pot, place artichoke halves, 2 tbsp lemon juice and 3 to 4 inches of water. Bring to a roiling boil, cover and reduce to medium heat. Boil for 30 minutes.
3. In a food processor, pulse miracle whip, basil, garlic, lemon juice, 2 tbsp lemon juice, dijon mustard and olive oil until it is smooth. Place in fridge until artichokes are finished.
4. Remove artichokes after 30 minutes and grill for 2 to 4 minutes. If using a grill, spray artichoke halves with non stick spray; if using a griddle, spray the griddle.

Serve with sauce as a great side or double the portions to make a light dinner. The sauce is also great with fish.

Makes 6 servings.
