It's a cinch to mix this zesty salad together for a potluck. "It'll feed a crowd and then some," attests Karin Graw from Hudson, Wisconsin. "For a lighter version, I use less oil and a sugar substitute for the dressing and toss in turkey bacon. Either way, it tastes great."

"I made some significant changes. 1. I didn't have any onion or peppers in the house, so none ended up in the salad, 2. I don't like any sugar or sugar substitutes if I can avoid them, so I just left them out, 3. I had a can of black olives I threw it in, 4. Finally, instead of oil I used a bit of the marinade that artichokes were in. It is fairly good. I agree that it serves more like 10-12 than 20-24 unless we're talking about small small tastes."

"Great salad but it doesn't served anywhere near the 20-24. I halved the recipe for 5 of us and it could have served 6. Easy to make and good flavor."
