This artichoke salad dressing recipe is deliciously tangy. It’s made from marinated artichoke hearts that you can pick up at the grocery store, and it only takes about 5 minutes to make a batch!

I first had this salad dressing at a work potluck. I don’t like work potlucks for the same reason I don’t like buffets – all the different food combinations usually make for a bad tummy. Why can’t I just limit myself to a couple of dishes? Good question. My solution is simply to avoid these occasions whenever I possibly can. I’m also antisocial and not a “team player”.

One time when I skipped one of these potlucks my lovely coworker who makes this dressing pulled me out of a meeting later in the day to tell me that she saved me some – bless her heart.

How to make artichoke salad dressing

Add the artichokes, olive oil, lemon juice, white wine vinegar, shallot, garlic, mustard, sugar, and salt to a blender and blend until smooth. Give it a taste and adjust the flavors to your liking if needed (e.g. add more sugar or garlic).

I slightly adapted my coworker’s recipe – instead of using onion, I use shallot, and I put in less sugar.

The recipe makes enough for several salads – I eat it over a few days. I really love this unique salad dressing. I hope you give it a try!

    Very, very nice. I needed something unique for a ladies’ lunch. My only issue was I had no white wine vinegar—so I used red wine vinegar, which made it pink. No big deal. It was a real hit at the luncheon. Thanks. This will be a “go-to”.

    1. Great!! It’ll work for plenty of salads. I love butter leaf lettuce and tons of veggies and tomatoes.

    Fantastic photos, and amazing looking artichoke salad dressing! I am obsessed with artichoke! I’ll definitely try it! Thanks a lot for sharing!

  3. I don’t think I have ever had artichoke dressing before. I will definitely have to try, though!
