¼ cup balsamic vinegar
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Juice of 1 lemon
¼ teaspoon salt

Cover the bottom of a large pot with an inch of water and place the artichokes in the pot. Bring water to a
boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook until artichokes are par-cooked. When done, remove from
pot and allow to cool. Split in half lengthwise and remove hairy choke. Set aside.
Prepare marinade by whisking all the other ingredients in a bowl. Dip each artichoke half into the
marinade and then place cut side down in a 9” x 13” baking dish. After all have been dipped, pour
remaining marinade over them, cover, and allow to sit in the refrigerator for 2 hours to overnight.
Place artichokes on medium-hot grill. Cook for about 5-10 minutes on each side to create grill marks.
Serve warm with Garlic Dip.
