Easy Artichoke Appetizer

Easy and delicious artichoke appetizer! 

1. Boil an artichoke in a large pot of water until you can easily poke a fork/knife into the stem.
2. Cut in half and brush the cut side with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
3. Place cut side down on a hot grill and cook until slightly charred.  
4. Drizzle or dip with Balsamic Vinegar. 

You can eat it just as is or you can always make an easy dipping sauce. Some like to dip in butter, others like mayonnaise.  

Flavored mayonnaise is great - try a little mayo, add lime juice, chopped cilantro, salt & pepper. YUM! Or try a garlic and herb mayo, another good one. 

There are a million combinations you can make with the dipping sauces. Get creative and enjoy!

My mom, referred to as Mama L, and I have been talking about starting a blog for quite some time now. We are always trying new recipes and making new crafts - always being told by friends and family that we need to sell our creations. Instead of selling them we've decided to share our crafty ideas, yummy recipes along with our funny adventures here on our blog. Please follow us and enjoy. We are always trying to find new places to explore, new recipes to cook for our families and most of all we're just having fun!
