YUM! A really delicious dip, if a bit mild. brilliant for an artichoke lover such as me. I went easy on the mint, added a pinch of salt and pepper and didn't use all the oil from the artichoke jar. Oh, I didn't use crème fraiche either, I used 0% fat greek yogurt- it turned out perfectly!!!

Have made this lots of times; quick, easy and delicious. I don't use all the oil from the jar. Lemon zest is a good addition, as Alba suggested, and in winter I used dried mint. Have also used yoghourt instead of creme fraiche.

This is a superb idea mixing artichokes and mint. When i make it i will try it will artichokes in water and then if i need to add a little olive oil i will.. also i will try a little zest of lemon.
