First of all, THANK YOU for posting the second set of measurements! While I can see it being confusing if someone changes the number of servings, since I didn't it was a great help! Secondly, I wasn't entirely sure where the garlic was supposed to come in, so I sauteed it with the onions, and used quartered artichoke hearts. The red of the dressing looked a little odd to us (that color should be on a hot pasta, not cold salad! lol), but it is VERY tasty! Thank you for posting, made for ZWT4.

This made a nice salad and was served on a bed of mixed greens. I did add some fresh garlic and followed Rita's lead and used pearl onions. The artichokes were cut in half and the mushrooms were sliced. Made for *ZWT 4*

A must make recipe!! Low cal`s and I made it lower fat by cutting the oil by 1/2. I used pearl onions, mushrooms quartered, ketchup in place of the puree wasn`t going to open a jar of tomatoes for the little amount I needed. I quartered the artichokes. Thanks for a great salad.
