Lemon Artichoke Dip/Sauce/Pesto

Lemon Artichoke Dip/Sauce/Pesto
  • Sumo

I have a few pot luck get- togethers coming up soon, so I’ve been trying out a few different recipes and thinking about what I might  bring. One of the things I whipped up for practice was this lemony artichoke dip. It makes a very tasty dip for vegetables or these paleo crackers. I think it would also make a nice spread inside of a lettuce leaf with some chicken and veggies for a paleo lettuce roll-up. It would probably also be good on some fried eggs. I might try dipping chicken breasts in it and then coating them in almond flour before frying. See all of the things you could make with this?

  1. YUM!! I love the idea of dipping chicken breasts in the sauce and then coating the chicken in almond flour. That sounds AWESOME! Thanks for the recipe.

    • Hi Erin,
      I liked the chicken idea, too and will try it out sometime. I have made a chicken recipe with lemon and artichoke hearts before so I think the flavors would work well together. These would be “grown-up” chicken nuggets 😉
