Adapted from Sara Foster for myrecipes.com. Sara Foster's recipes are always a delight to make and they work. This is one of her easy make-ahead appetizers from when we worked together at Cottage Living magazine. I've modified by replacing mayonnaise with thick Greek-style yogurt and adding a pinch of ground Cayenne and a squeeze of lemon juice.

ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 shallots, diced
  • 2 (14-ounce) cans artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, cooked
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup thick plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup fresh (soft) crustless breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons hot sauce
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions (white and pale green parts only)
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Serve with Belgian endive, crostini, or crackers

directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Butter a 1-quart ovenproof dish, and set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and sauté 3 to 4 minutes or until soft and translucent.
  3. Combine shallot, artichoke, and next 9 ingredients in a large bowl, add sea salt and pepper, and stir to combine thoroughly. Transfer to prepared dish, and bake at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes or until heated through and bubbling around edges.
  4. Serve warm with Belgian endive, crostini, or crackers.

    This was wonderful. It was very tasty on a pizza as well.

      Thanks, Maureen. I like how the yogurt offers a bit of tang and lightens up the whole dip. It’s a good base for lots of modifications. Let me know how you like it.
