Found this in the Pillsbury e-zine, putting here for safekeeping! I always use my favorite homemade italian dressing or Good Seasons

Top Review by Sydney Mike

I cut this recipe in half for just 2 of us, then cut the amount of artichokes in half yet again, adding them to just half of the prepared salad since my other half loves 'em & I don't! Worked out very well, as we each had a salad we could thoroughly enjoy! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
