How do you eat whole artichokes?

I have been blessed with a half dozen of whole globe artichokes leftover from a thanksgiving table centerpiece.

The first two, I simply steamed and ate plain, as I enjoy the delicate flavor of the artichoke by itself.

However, I'm looking for some other ways to eat the rest. Any dipping sauces, besides a butter or oil based ones, that are good to dip the leaves in? I'd also prefer to eat the artichokes whole rather than just use the hearts.
