Ingredients in Artichoke Dip
CREAM CHEESE gives this sauce its creamy base. I do it without sour cream (and just a touch of mayonnaise) although I could add them to your liking.

PARMESANadd just a touch of flavor and pair well with this sauce. Again, we add only a small amount so that the true flavor is the artichoke.
ARTICHOKES I use preserves or marinades, both work in this recipe. Canning is slightly simpler in flavor where marinated artichokes are often marinated in olive oil with seasonings.
GARLIC Use a fresh garlic clove for this (not the jar type) for best results. Garlic powder will serve if necessary.
I love the simplicity of this sauce and consider it to be perfect for my tastes. To change it, you can add any of the following:
- chopped dried tomatoes
- roasted red peppers or bell peppers
- diced jalapeños
- Fresh herbs
- lemon zest or juice
