Q: The fall artichoke season is coming and I need help! I grew up dipping the leaves into a mixture of mayo and lemon juice, occasionally garlic butter. My metabolism isn't what it used to be and I'd love some recipes and suggestions for some healthy, easy alternatives. Thanks so much! - Marina

Marina, we sympathize; while artichokes themselves are rather low in substance and calories, the rich butter sauces and rémoulades like the one pictured above can be overly rich.

We wonder if a simple sauce of lemon juice with just a few drops of olive oil might be a good substitute. Readers, any other ideas?
