I have had a recipe like this, but this wasn't quite it, but still good. It was a little bland, needed more olives, and it was drier than I would have liked. I think with more dressing and olives, salt & pepper and maybe some more herbs, this could be a 5 star recipe.

This has been a favorite of mine forever! I've been looking for the receipe for long time! I like it with the balck olives and no peppers. I put broccoli in it instead. I also saute garlic in with the rice a roni and use a little cyanne peopper instead of the curry.

great salad. i made it exactly as posted but used artichokes bottoms. the next time i won't use the green pepper and will double up on the green olives instead.
