Artichoke and Fennel Caponata
This dip is chunky like a salsa, but the similarities end there. Its assortment of flavors―crisp, anise-tinged fennel, plump and chewy raisins, piquant capers, and tender, slightly sweet artichoke―create a uniquely delicious taste. The dip is best with something nice and crunchy; slice baguette very thin and toast well, or use fancy crackers.
