artichoke balsamic dipping sauceTwo weeks ago I wrote about the dipping sauce that my family enjoyed with our steamed artichokes.  Theirs was a creamy, mayonnaise-based sauce.  While it was tasty in its own right, I like only a small amount of mayonnaise.  Thus, I really wasn’t interested in dipping leaf after leaf in the sauce.  And although I enjoy artichokes, they are kind of bland on their own.  So, it was time to be creative and invent another sauce for me.

Vinegar is one of my go-to ingredients for an assortment of sauces, dips, and dressings.  While holding a good amount of flavor, it also plays well with other ingredients.  It doesn’t hurt that it is a low calorie, low fat ingredient also.

For the artichoke dipping sauce, using balsamic vinegar seemed like a natural partner.  The addition of two other ingredients and about a dozen minutes of cooking produced a sauce that I thoroughly enjoyed.  It would work well also drizzled on a steak or pork roast.
