Recipe - Artichokes with Green Goddess Dressing

Green Goddess Dressing was invented at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco in 1923, and became a huge hit, remaining very prevalent throughout the 1960s.  It has recently had a resurgence in popularity, and is now often made with avocado, but we prefer this lighter, more traditional version, which is great as a dressing in a salad, or as a dipping sauce for artichokes or other vegetables.

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup plain yogurt (Greek will be better for a dipping sauce, whereas European is nice for a runnier dressing)
2 tablespoons each of 2-3 fresh herbs sch as parsley, tarragon, dill, chives, or basil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 finely diced garlic cloves
juice of one lemon
salt  pepper to taste

Combine the ingredients in a bowl, and serve alongside steamed artichokes or crudité, or on a salad.
