Artichoke dip is a dip that uses artichoke as a primary ingredient.[1][2] Some versions are served chunky, while others are puréed and have a smooth texture.[3][4] It may be served as an hors d'oeuvre along with crackers or chips for dipping.[5] Commercially prepared artichoke dips are produced for consumer purchase. It has been described as "one of the most popular appetizer menu items of all time".[6]

Ingredients and preparation[edit]

Fresh (cooked) or canned/jarred artichokes may be used in the preparation of artichoke dip.[7] Ingredients may include lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper,[4] mayonnaise,[5] bread crumbs, garlic, basil[8] and Parmesan.[9] It is sometimes prepared using spinach as an additional primary ingredient.[2][10] Some versions are baked in an oven, which can give them a brown crust on the top.[5][9] It is sometimes served in a hollowed-out round of bread.[5]


Its origins or original inventor appears to be unknown.[citation needed]
