This is one of my family's favorite summer meals. The creamy Italian dressing is really hard to find anymore, the last time I made it, I used a creamy Caesar dressing. Not quite the same, but still yummy! I usually throw in an extra can of the artichoke hearts. You can also add grape tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers - almost anything you might want in it. I serve it with toasted, buttered french bread.
