Light Artichoke Dip|
This dip has a great flavor and is made lower in fat by using reduced calorie mayonnaise and Asiago cheese, which is lower in fat than the original recipe, which used Parmesan cheese. Jarred unmarinated artichoke hearts or even fresh artichoke hearts can be used instead of the frozen artichoke hearts if desired. You can also add 1 box frozen spinach that has been thawed and squeezed dry for a marvelous spinach-artichoke dip.
2 boxes frozen artichoke hearts, defrosted and drained
2 cups fat free mayonnaise
1 bunch thinly sliced scallions
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon Hungarian paprika
2 cups grated Asiago cheese
Coarsley chop the artichoke hearts and place in a medium ovenproof serving dish. Add the mayonnaise, scallions, grated cheese, and spices.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and serve with sturdy crackers or bread rounds. Tortilla chips also go well with this dish.
