Artichoke Sauce Recipe Ingredients
You just need 7 simple ingredients to make this recipe:
- Mayonnaise – You can taste mayonnaise in this recipe, so be sure to use a really good one. I love Sir Kensington’s classic mayonnaise, avocado oil mayonnaise, and vegan mayonnaise. My homemade vegan mayonnaise would work here too!
- Greek yogurt – It makes the sauce thick and creamy and adds a nice tangy flavor.
- Lemon juice – Who doesn’t like artichokes + lemon? It adds a nice light to this recipe.
- Dijon’s mustard – For more silk.
- Garlic – Make sure you grate it finely (I use my Microplane zester) so that it fits well into the sauce.
- Black pepper – Yeah, just pepper! The mayonnaise is already salty, so I find that this sauce does not need additional salt. If you wish, you can salt to taste.
- Chive – To complement the onion and garlic taste of the sauce.

Combine mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, garlic and pepper in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Garnish with chives and serve!
How to serve the artichoke sauce
Most often, I serve this artichoke dip with steamed artichokes; find my method to prepare them here! To serve, peel the artichoke leaves one by one, dip them in the sauce and scrape the artichoke meat and sauce with your teeth. This sauce tastes fantastic with the artichoke heart and stem too.
If you run out of artichokes before you run out of sauce, don’t worry! This recipe also works as a dip or dressing for other vegetables. Drizzle with grilled asparagus, roasted broccoli or Brussels sprouts, or serve with air fryer cauliflower, air fryer fries or baked sweet potato fries to soak. Stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator, it will keep for up to 4 days.
