Artichoke Dip.........

One of my favorite dips is artichoke dip. You don't have to bake this and it is so good. How can you not like a tasty dip like this one? 
Artichoke Dip
1 14-ounce can of artichoke hearts, packed in water, drained
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup packed, grated Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp lemon zest
1 clove garlic, minced 
1/2 teaspoon fresh black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
3 to 4 Tbsp lemon juice

Put the drained artichoke hearts, parsley, Parmesan, lemon zest, garlic, and salt and pepper in a food processor.  Pulse a few times until a paste forms. You should still be able to make out bits of parsley and lemon, so don't over-process it. Place the cream cheese in a medium sized bowl.  Add the artichoke parsley mixture and the lemon juice.  Stir until well blended.  Add more salt, pepper and lemon juice to taste.  Garnish with a few fresh leaves of parsley, shredded Parmesan or  lemon zest.
Till next time.........
