Bacon Blue Cheese Artichoke Tossed Salad

 Bacon Blue Cheese Artichoke Tossed Salad
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."
