Italian Marinated Vegetable Salad
1 pkt Good Seasons Zesty Italian Dressing mix, prepared
8 oz fresh button mushrooms, sliced
1 can artichoke hearts, drained and quartered
black and/or green olives, sliced
freshly grated parmesan cheese
juilienned hard salami
salad greens, your choice
Combine Italian dressing, mushrooms, artichoke hearts and olives, and allow to marinate for an hour or two. Assemble salads on small plates, ladle mixture over top, and finish with cheese and salami. Garnish with cherry tomatoes and serve with crusty bread.
*note* roasted red peppers are nice in this too. Sometimes I use a potato peeler to make thin curls of the parmesan, instead of grating.
