      I love this salad as a quick "go-to" for picnics and potlucks. No mayo makes travel easier and everyone who tries it likes it lots! This is a very forgiving recipe. Sometimes I use feta as the cheese, sometimes replace or add sun dried tomatoes with/instead of the roasted red pepper, sometimes add chopped pepperocini, and usually just add some of the oil from the marinated artichoke hearts along with some red wine vinegar and lots of freshly ground pepper instead of using prepared dressing. Always yummy! Thanks so much for a keeper! Oh, my daughter "doesn't like pasta salad" but loves this heated up as a pasta dish.

      So yummy and quick to do - i even sent it with DD for her school lunch and she loved it too. I loved the cheese in it and used parsley out of the garden !! I used fat free mayo as the dressing. Made for ZWT 5 .
