This recipe came about completely by accident when I once used twice the amount of jarred artichoke liquid necessary when making a Sit Sandwich (Mom's Sit Sandwich (Aka Squishy Sorta Muffuletta) – delicious!). My husband was delighted, however, and happily used the leftover as a salad dressing until it was gone… which was all too quickly, in his opinion. :) He’s also used it as a sandwich spread, and it makes a great dip for steamed artichoke leaves. Putting this recipe together is pretty quick, if you do it at the same time or after you’re making a Sit Sandwich.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain the jar of marinated artichokes, reserving the juice. Chop the hearts into smallish bits (about the size you’d expect in a salad dressing).
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the minced/chopped artichoke and the reserved juice with the remaining ingredients. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Store in a recycled mayonnaise jar in the refrigerator.
