Look for pepperoncinis (pickled peppers) in the pickle and olive section of your grocery store.
A delicious assortment of vegetables—asparagus, artichokes, broccoli, cauliflower and mushrooms—are marinated in homemade vinaigrette seasoned with garlic and fresh parsley and oregano.—Lynda Barron, McFarland, Wisconsin
My youngest daughter and I enjoy time in the kitchen together making these attractive appetizers. The "firecrackers" burst with chicken, cheese and pepperoncinis.
I created this salad when I needed a crowd-pleaser for an event at a community charity drive and it was a huge success. I have been asked repeatedly for the recipe and asked to please make this at least six events this year. This salad keeps very well if you keep it refrigerated.—
