Grilled Artichoke with dipping sauce

Makes 2-4 Servings

2- Artichokes
1/2 cup - Lemon juice
1 tsp - Salt

Dipping Sauce
1/8 cup - Lemon juice
1 Tbsp - Dijon Mustard
1/4 cup - Light mayonnaise
1/4 cup - Light Sour Cream
3 dashes of hot sauce
1/2 tsp - Hot Chili sauce

In a small bowl mix all dipping sauce ingredients.  Place in fridge until needed.

Cut the artichokes in half lengthwise, splitting the stem in half.  Remove a couple of the bottom layers and peel the stem with the potato peeler.

With a spoon dig out the inner fibers at the center of the artichoke. Submerge the artichokes into a bowl of cold water with the lemon juice.  The lemon juice prevents browning.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the salt.  Add the artichokes to the boiling water and cook until you can insert a fork easily into the stem.  About 15 minutes.  

Remove from the boiling water and place in cold water.

Heat the BBQ over medium high heat.  Spray or brush artichokes with olive oil.  Place cut-side down on the grill and cook for 5 minutes.

Serve with dipping sauce.
