Artichoke Love

I bought 2 big artichokes at the farmers market and forgot to cook them for Saturday.

Looking around for a recipe for a friend( Hi Kate!) I came across what is considered a sauce in France. Super easy and uses only a few ingredients and it can be made ahead of time. A great warm day dish for lunch or dinner. It tastes very fresh and if you wanted to fancy it up replace small cooked shrimp (or fresh crab) for the egg.

Sauce Gribiche (Egg, Pickle, and Caper Mayonnaise)


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (I use an unsweetened brand, Trader Joe’s)
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped dill pickle (cornichons are the tasties)
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallot
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 tablespoons chopped drained bottled capers
  • 1 teaspoon dill powder
  • 2 hard-boiled large eggs, chopped fine

In a bowl stir together the mayonnaise, the yogurt, the pickle, the shallot, the parsley, the capers, the dill powder, the egg, and pepper to taste.

You can add just a drop or two of hot sauce to give it a kick.
