Cold Tailgating Recipes: How to Make Cold Artichoke Dip With Parmesan & Lemon

We all know that classic hot artichoke dip, but in the warmer months it's nice to have a cool, refreshing dip to ... well ... dip. This cold artichoke dip recipe will be the star of your next gathering. 

You'll need:

  • 1 can (14 ounces) artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (divided)
  • 1/4 cup chopped Italian flat leaf parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • zest from 1 lemon
  • juice from 1 lemon (about 3 tablespoons)
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put half the artichokes, half the Parmesan, parsley, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a blender. Pulse a few times. 
  2. Put the cream cheese in a bowl and add the pulsed artichoke mixture. Mix well. 
  3. Chop the remaining artichoke hearts and add them and remaining Parmesan to the mixture. Stir to combine. Taste and season with more salt, pepper and lemon juice, if needed. 

Serve with crackers, chips, toasted baguette slices or veggies.

Yum! This would also be good served with endive leaves or even rolled in tortillas and cut into pinwheels.
