The perfect pasta salad for picnics, potlucks and gatherings. I've made this without the mayo, using the artichoke marinade in it's place, and it was equally fabulous and well received! Best served well chilled.

  3. Stir in the reserved artichoke marinade, a spoonful at a time, to the desired consistency.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Garnish with snipped fresh herbs (parsley and chives).
  6. Cover and thoroughly chill (several hours or overnight) before serving.
