Creamy Artichoke Chèvre Dip
Prepare this tangy crowd-pleaser several hours before serving to allow its flavors to meld.
Try Ommegang Witte (Cooperstown, N.Y.), a classic Belgian-style white beer spiced with orange peel and coriander; it won’t overpower the delicate flavors of artichoke and chèvre, yet it has the palate-cleansing power to cut through both the mayo and Parmigiano-Reggiano.
Prepare the artichoke hearts according to the package directions. Drain and let cool for 10 minutes.
Place the artichoke hearts, green onion, garlic, parsley, and salt in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse to chop.
Add the remaining ingredients and process until well combined and as chunky or smooth as desired. Serve with assorted vegetables and crackers.
