READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Lindas Busy Kitchen

This is one of my creations that I served with Chicken and Veal Marsala, Fettuccini Alfredo, and Italian Garlic Bread for a dinner I had with company last winter... It was a perfect salad to serve with my special Italian dinner!

Most delicious! Now your talking Italian here!!! This side salad went so well with my Italian dinner that I made for DS and his girlfriend. We enjoyed every bite. We all agreed it is one of the best salads we have ever had, and it went especially well with our pasta. I loved the addition of the pepperoncini's and artichokes. This is a keeper and is now in my favorite recipe file!
