Grilled Baby Artichokes

Karen and I are huge

fans of artichokes. My grandmother left me with

a breaded artichoke

recipe, but I altered the recipe to a much more simple "summer-clean" version without breading. Artichokes are

like eating crabs-you get very little for all the hard work. I don't recommend these for a first date or a

red lipstick night, but

otherwise, have fun with

these tough yet tender lil'





12 baby artichokes

Balsamic Mayo Dipping Sauce:

1/3 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup EVOO

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1/2 lemon, juiced

1 tsp. garlic paste

1 tsp. salt

2 tsp. black pepper

Cut off the stems. Cut off about 1/4 of the tops. Use kitchen scissors to clip tips of leaves. Steam for 20 mins. Let cool for 5 mins. Cut artichokes in half. Spoon out "choke" (furry center) of the artichoke.

Grill marinade: EVOO, lemon juice, minced garlic, pinch of S&P

Toss artichokes in marinade. Artichokes should be lightly coated in marinade. Grill for 5 mins, inner-face down. Do not move once on the grill. Baby artichokes grill quickly, keep an eye on them!
