Spring is finally here and with it comes our favorite grilled recipes. Come April, we turn off the oven and dust off our grill. This Grilled Artichokes with Lemon-Basil Dipping Sauce is usually one of the first items to make its way onto our plate.

We’ll take artichokes any way we can get them: plain, steamed, slathered in butter, fried. Our favorite comes way of our sibling, who created this side dish. Truth be told this usually turns into a full-blown lunch. This artichoke recipe is a hard act to follow.
