"Here's an easy, lower-fat version of warm artichoke-cheese dip. In new research, artichoke hearts tested surprisingly high in antioxidant activity -- even more per cup than strawberries. Garlic and chives are high in antioxidants, too, and fat-free cottage cheese helps keep the fat and calorie counts down."

I made this dip for my book club last night. Unfortunately, it wasn't very well received. I think the main problem is that the goat cheese takes over the flavor and that comes as kind of a surprise (given that it isn't called "GOAT cheesey artichoke dip." I cooked it exactly according to the directions, but it came out kind of dry and crumbly - probably because of the consistency of the goat cheese. If you are a big fan of goat cheese, you'd probably like it, but not if you are expecting your average artichoke dip.
Really really good especially with the dill flavor. I substituted the artichokes for 'spicy' artichokes - a little added kick.
Very good. Very easy to make. I had non-herbed got cheese and marinated artichokes (which I rinsed) and it still turned out really well. My husband said to decrease the mayo next time, but I think it tastes good. As a previous reviewer noted, there is a strong goat cheese taste. This is a positive for me, but if you're not crazy about that flavor you may not enjoy this. I really liked it overall.
This dip was a huge success at our Sunday football get-together! In my opinion, it was better than the full fat version found in restaurants!
