10-ish slices thick-cut bacon
1 12-ounce jar of marinated artichoke hearts
1/3 cup quality mayonnaise
3 sprigs green onion, cut into 1" hunks
2 Tbs balsamic vinegar
Salt, if necessary
Ground pepper to taste
Fry bacon in a skillet on medium heat until crispy. Dry off excess fat then roughly chop. Add to bowl of the food processor.
*Can set aside a couple pieces to chop into bacon bits and sprinkle on top!
Drain and rinse artichoke hearts and add them to the food processor.
Then add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth (or a little chunky, but well-mixed).
Taste, and add salt and more pepper, if necessary. Add your bacon bits if you saved any.
Serve warm or cold with crackers, crudité (or with a spoon!)
