This is a favorite at picnics, barbecues or with sub sandwiches. I love the artichokes and pine nuts, they go so well in this recipe.

What a great use for the marinade of artichoke hearts! Very clever. I doubled the recipe and took it to school to share with my colleagues. They loved it, as did I. This is definitely a recipe I will use often in the summer. Thanks for sharing, Sue! ***Made for PRMR***
