Fellow blogger and good friend, Lea Ann fromMangos Chili & Z, has a new feature called “No Recipe Needed” where she features some no-fuss goodies.  When I told her about this lemon pepper sauce, she encouraged me to steal her idea and share this yummy dip for artichokes.   I had to do it. 

For this dip, I use Boyajian Pure Lemon Oil, but you can use finely grated lemon zest as well.  Not only is it  SIMPLE, it’s delicious.  

You’ll need . . .

  • Artichokes – washed and trimmed
  • A dollop of good mayonaise for each artichoke
  • A few drops of Boyajian Pure Lemon Oil or finely grated lemon zest
  • Freshly grated black pepper
  •  A little lemon juice if desired (makes a thinner sauce)

Steam artichokes for 45 minutes  

While the artichokes steam, combine the mayo, lemon and peppper and mix well.  Set aside to allow the flavors to blend.
