I highly recommend Marie's Chunky Blue Cheese dressing (my favorite for almost forty years now) and Cara Mia Artichoke Hearts, both of which you should be able to be find in the produce section of your market. This dip tastes awesome with celery, radishes, and toasted baguette slices!
Oh, and save that drained artichoke marinade to use for flavoring salads.
1/2 cup Blue Cheese Dressing, or more to taste
1 (14.5 oz) jar artichoke hearts, well drained and chopped
1 cup sour cream
2 green onions, chopped
Mix all ingredients and place in a serving bowl. Cover and chill for at least one hour to allow the flavors to blend before serving.
11 ounce package of creamed spinach (found in the frozen food section), thawed
1 garlic gloves, finely chopped or pressed
6 ounces marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese (the fresh block kind or similar, not the dry stuff)
Combine all ingredients in an oven safe casserole dish and bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until heated through.
Serve with crackers, tortillas chips or fresh veggies.
Makes approx. 15 servings.
I take this to almost every potluck party I attend and I never bring any home! I purchase the spinach and artichoke hearts when they are on sale and keep them on hand. The other ingredients are staples in my household, so I almost always have them. This dish is really easy to double and can also be heated in the microwave until bubbly. You won't get the nice browned top in the microwave, but the taste is the same.
I made this during the holidays and it was a big hit! It is extremely rich. Serve with bread or crackers, or scoop it into a bread bowl for a festive touch.
1 cup pinenuts
1 bulb garlic, cloves peeled and trimmed
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese
1 cup parmesan (grated or shredded)
1 small jar of artichoke hearts (I used unmarinated
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place pinenuts and garlic cloves in the center of a square of tinfoil, drizzle olive oil on top, add salt and pepper and twist closed. Put in an ovenproof dish and roast for 1 hour. Allow cream cheese to soften in a mixing bowl during this time. The pinenuts should be golden brown and the garlic cloves should be soft and fragrant. Remove garlic cloves and mince them (I use a garlic press) and add to mixing bowl along with pinenuts, parmesan and any remaining olive oil. Mix thoroughly. Coarsely chop artichoke hearts and add to mixture. Place mixture in small casserole and bake at 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes or until the top is browned and bubbling.
This can be made a day or two ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator until party time. If cold when heating, reduce temperature to 350 degrees F, cover and bake for 30 minutes, then uncover and allow top to brown.

Here are questions related to Artichoke Dip Recipes.
Recently, I got addicted to the artichoke, spinach and jalapeno dip at Sam's Club (it was in a hexagonal plastic jar, and white in color). Now I can't find it anymore, and I've been searching for a recipe that's pretty close to the commercial product (which I think was their house brand).
The recipes I found all contain mayo, and way more types of cheese than I think are necessary. And, to top it off, the results just don't taste "fresh".
Do you have a recipe that you think tastes like the Sam's Club one (if you've ever had it), or a similar dip you swear by? Thanks in advance, lovely people.
