Hot Artichoke Dip for new friends

Summer is a time for gatherings and friends. I've been so fortunate to meet some wonderful people in the last week. Sarah, Jenny and John are three of these folks of note. How amazing is it to begin relationships and choose others to share your life- very cool!
Here is a quick four ingredient recipe to treat your guests. No kidding- they will love it. If you like things spicy, your fifth ingredient can be cayenne or Chalula sauce
Hot Artichoke Dip
In a 2 qt baking dish mix together:
1 cup chopped marinated artichoke hearts
1 cup Real Mayonnaise
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions or shredded vidalia onion
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until bubbly and hot. If you like to add green healthy bits to your snacks feel free to stir in 2 cups of chopped fresh spinach when you take it out of the oven. Serve hot with crackers or bread rounds.
Savor. Linger. Enjoy!
