Helpful hints

  • If canned or jarred artichokes in water are used instead of frozen, look for the lowest sodium brand. Rinse well to help reduce sodium.
  • Try this dip on toasted slices of baguette, crisp celery or with your favorite low-sodium crackers. Choose rice crackers or other gluten-free crackers if you are on a gluten-free diet.
  • Tabasco© sauce is one of the lowest sodium hot pepper sauces.
