"A boyfriend's mother taught me this great dipping sauce for artichokes and asparagus. It's somewhat like aioli. Replace dried basil for fresh, and garlic salt for the garlic. If you do use dried basil, cut the original amount in half. Use low-fat mayonnaise if you like." — Andrea Alexander

garlic, finely chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons
1 1/2 teaspoons
chopped fresh basil
This was a nice change from my usual dipping sauce for artichokes. I would use this when I have fresh basil though I still think my favorite herb to use is tarragon. Lovely change though. UPDATE: I came back today to up this from four to five stars. The flavors of this sauce only improve with a day in the refrigerator. Delicious! Thanks for sharing!
Pretty tasty but I prefer my own dipping sauce. I did add a dash or two of Tabasco sauce and it tasted much better. Served with Elegant Artichokes.
Love it!!! I use greek yogurt instead and left out the Worcestershire sauce. Yum!
Delicious! Easy to make and an absolute compliment to an artichoke.
This wasn't fully rounded enough for me. Followed the instructions exactly, even used fresh basil from the garden. Just didn't have the right taste.
