Frequently Asked Questions
I used a reduced amount of avocado oil mayonnaise #ad in this recipe to make it creamy and combined it with low-fat Greek yogurt. Sir Kensington's avocado mayonnaise has the least amount of processed ingredients in a prepared mayonnaise.
If you prefer to avoid mayonnaise, you can substitute low-fat cream cheese for the mayonnaise, or double the amount of Greek yogurt and whisk in 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil before adding it to the artichoke hearts.
What to Serve with Artichoke Dip
I serve this Easy Artichoke Dip as a stand-alone appetizer with whole wheat crackers and chopped vegetables or as part of an appetizer group. It pairs well with Greek Yogurt Dill Dip, my Spicy Cheese Ball, and my Mediterranean Stuffed Eggs.
