Artichokes are not only beautiful to watch, they’re also filled with nutrition and taste delicious. Some people might think there’s a lot of work for little food. But I totally think it’s worth it. Today I made artichokes boiled in lemon water and then grilled until soft. I served them with a light and fresh Lemon & Caper dip.
Grilled artichokes are perfect to serve as an appetizer or side dish. I also love bringing them for a picknick to add that something extra and unexpected. I love how this lemon caper dip makes the dish feel much more fresh and light than serving it with olive oil or butter as you usually get them.
