I love artichokes. This recipe is delicious with poached eggs and a tangy sauce - a wonderful light meal.

Delicious--a fabulous alternative to Eggs Benedict. I used 'lite' mayo and otherwise followed the recipe-a nice lemony rich tartar-kind-of-sauce combining beautifully with the artichokes and the poached eggs.
- 1⁄3 cup mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons capers, drained,minced
- 2 teaspoons onions, minced
- 2 teaspoons cornichons, minced (gherkins)
- 2 teaspoons fresh parsley, minced
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 2 large artichokes (if using fresh, prepare in usual manner, you can also use frozen)
- 1 lemon, halved
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 2 freshly-poached eggs
