Recipe by Andrea Alexander
"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

garlic, finely chopped

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!
I followed the recipe as written and we were not huge fans. It was not terrible, but I didn't like it enough to use it for my entire artichoke. I cannot pinpoint exactly why we didn't like it; I suppose it is just one of those things that some people enjoy and others do not!
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!
So, this is a quick aioli. I didn't have eggs, so found this. This is a great quick fix! My additions: added a lot more garlic and added 2 tbsp. of white wine. I also used parsley. It depends on taste preference. I did five stars because it only takes a little personal preference to make it wonderful..a good cook will know how to make this their own great sauce!
Loved it - loved it more with a dash of tabasco.
Nope I only ate about 5 leaves of the artichoke and had to go make melted butter with lemon for the rest. We like stuff that will run off, not stick so heavy to it. I think the Worcestershire was a bit too much also, even though we love that stuff. I'll keep looking for a butter or olive oil based sauce.
I made this tonight. So yummy. I was out of lemon but had lime so I used that. Plus I didn't have fresh basil so I used dried basil. Turned out great.
