"My husband created this smooth tangy sauce back in the 60's," recalls Lois Gelzer of Standish, Maine. "It complements the steamed artichokes, whether they're served warm or cold."

  • 1-1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon seasoned salt or salt-free seasoning blend
  • 3 drops hot pepper sauce


  1. Place the artichokes upside down in a steamer basket; place the basket in a saucepan over 1 in. of boiling water. Cover and steam for 25-35 minutes or until tender.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt and hot pepper sauce. Cover and refrigerate. Serve with artichokes.
