Artichokes may not seem like an easy vegetable to eat, but it is.

The flavor of the dip pairs very well with the artichoke leaves not to mention when you reach the heart.

Here are the Ingredients:
  • 1 large artichoke
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
Cut excess stem, leaving up to an inch on the artichoke.Take kitchen scissors and cut of the thorny tips of all of the leaves and then slice about 3/4 inch off the tip of the artichoke. Rinse it under cold water. Fill a double boiler with water about 2 inches and add apple cider vinegar.  Place artichoke in the steaming section of the double boiler and bring to a boil. Place lid on top and steam for 45 minutes or until leaves remove easily. When ready to eat pull off an individual leaf and dip the white fleshy end in a sauce. Tightly grip the other end of the leaf. Place in your mouth, dip side down, and pull through teeth to remove the soft portion of the leaf. Discard the remainder of the leaf. Continue until all of the leaves are removed. Take a spoon and scrape out and discard the inedible fuzzy part.The remaining bottom of the artichoke is the heart. Cut into nice bite size pieces dip and enjoy.
Mix together mayo and vinegar.
