Artichoke and sun-dried tomato spread is a little something to tide you over at brunch.

For the third recipe in #BrunchWeek, I went looking to my Mom’s recipes for inspiration. Her recipe boxes never disappoint. With Mother’s Day coming up I’m missing her a lot. I found an old, yellowed card with a recipe for artichoke spread. It looked vintage. It also sounds a bit vintage with a mayonnaise base.

I decided to use the Cento artichokes but add the sun-dried tomatoes for color and flavor. My Mom was always about color. She would often say about a dish, “it needs some green”. Now I look at food the same way she did. So taking one of her recipes and making it a bit better with a few extra ingredients to make artichoke and sun-dried tomato spread.

Sometimes brunch is a big affair but other times it’s small and more intimate. This artichoke and sun-dried tomato spread can be easily doubled or tripled for a larger crowd or enjoyed by just a few as it’s written.

If you don’t drain the artichokes or sun-dried tomatoes the spread will be oily. You can even pat them a bit with a paper towel. I chopped the sun-dried tomatoes finely but roughly chopped the artichokes for texture.

I served this spread with crackers but you could use celery or carrots and even crostini would be nice. It’s really suitable for just about any dipper.

Artichoke and sun-dried tomato spread is a great appetizer for date night.
