Best Artichoke Dip In Atlanta
" Did you know that artichokes are reported to have the highest antioxidant value of any vegetable? They also have less calories than sweet potatoes and boast a lower fat content than broccoli when prepared in a similar way. As if this were not enough, they are said to aid in digestion, making the artichoke an often under-appreciated vegetable.

While often prepared by steaming or boiling, and sometimes even marinated, artichokes make an excellent dip as part of an appetizer or as food for a gathering. Crab and spinach are common additions to an artichoke dip, giving a delicious twist to this creamy dish. Find the best artichoke dips in Atlanta to complement your meal.
