I've been so into artichokes recently.  Well, actually, I'm always into artichokes, but I just can't go to the store without buying one these days.  I always try to mix up how I make them.  Sometimes I steam, bake or grill.  And what I serve it with always changes : )  

Some of my favorite dips for artichokes are marinara sauce, butter, pesto aioli and this magical dipping sauce!

about 1/8 cup chopped chives or purple onions

a pinch of cayenne (optional)
