A half hour is all you need to mix up this colorful crowd-pleaser. Offering plenty of shrimp, artichoke hearts, olives, peppers and a host of herbs, it's a tasty change-of-pace from pasta salads. "The recipe completes any buffet," notes Ginger Johnson of Farmington, Illinois.
"When it comes to cooking, I believe the simpler the better," writes Holland, Michigan's Carol Blauw. "A few years ago, a co-worker told me about this colorful, tasty and, most importantly, easy-to-prepare salad," she says. "It has been a favorite at our house ever since."
