Dipping Sauce for Artichokes

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.

Original recipe makes 1 /4 cup


1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
