Crispy Artichokes with Greek Yogurt Herb Dip

Updated: Dec 12, 2023



I don't know if Jenn will agree with me, but I think this recipe was my favorite out of all five recipes on our holiday dinner menu. These are our Crispy Artichokes and Greek Yogurt Herb Dip and they are phenomenal. Artichokes are an undervalued vegetable, yet they are packed full with flavor and nutrients. They are a great source of fiber (helping digestion), great source of magnesium, vitamin C, and potassium. Who knew these little things can support your immune health, digestion, muscle and heart health? Thankfully they are also in season so they are going to be even more nutrient dense.


Now enough of the nutrition - this appetizer is so flavorful since we did pair the crispy artichokes with the Greek yogurt herb dip. This dip is so refreshing and pairs so well with the crispness and bitterness of the artichokes. It's a blend of Greek yogurt, olive oil, lemon, fresh cilantro, fresh dill, and garlic. It's an earthy and fresh dip!


The best part is that this dip can be used for so many other foods - you can save it and use it as a dressing for salads or nourish bowls too. So in case you do have some leftover after the holiday get-together, save the rest and use it later in the week. We are all about decreasing our food waste, which is why we tried to use similar ingredients in each recipe! Make this for your holiday party or again, make it for yourself one day when you want a fun and delicious snack. No matter who you make it for, it'll be so enjoyable. Let's get to it.
