Thanks, kadesma! This would be a great salad to take to a pot-luck. A nice change from the standards!

cj, I have been looking for this recipe for ages!! I a similar salad few years ago at a potluck at a friend's house and never managed to figure out who had made it so I could get the recipe. All the ingredients seem similar to what was in that salad except for the artichoke hearts. Thanks!!

Hi SC,
Doesn't it annoy you when you try something new and several ingredients just seem to allude you? I'm glad this one is similar to the one that you liked.
Enjoy,
kadesma

A good way to use artichokes in a salad. Will definitely try it when they are in season or sooner if I can get hold of the canned ones. Thanks for sharing your recipe, kadesma!

You're welcome boufa,
if you can get frozen quartered artichokes they work the best. I have used the marinated ones, but there is something in the oil and vinegar that is used that I do'nt care for,,I can't identify the flavor but it's an odd one. So, if i do use them I rinse them in warm water first.

Yes, I agree the frozen ones work best. Unfortunately it's difficult to find them but I will look around the supermarkets here to see if I can get hold of some. My DH does not like the canned ones, myself too, as they are preserved in lemon juice and give quite an odd taste. They are only good when I prepare a veggie dish called Agginares a la Polita using carrots, peas, potatoes and dill as it has lemon juice in it.

Thanks again. It is really frustrating to try to recreate a dish that I only tasted once.
