Our Food staff especially liked this and Balsamic-Apricot Butter with the Steamed Fresh Artichokes. You can also brush either sauce on steamed artichoke halves in place of olive oil, salt, and pepper before grilling.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper

How to Make It

  1. Microwave butter in a microwave-safe glass bowl at HIGH 30 to 45 seconds or until melted and hot. Stir in basil, salt, and red pepper. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
