I was looking for a quick dish to serve with some shrimp gyros. I found this recipe and liked that it looked like it would go together pretty quickly. It did, and it turned out very well. It was just a touch dry for my taste. I might add the liquid from the marinated artichokes next time. It was good and flavorful, as well as unique. It complemented the gyros perfectly!
