Artichoke hearts, fresh vegetables and Italian salad dressing combine to make this no-fuss favorite from Ann Marie Petri. "I always take this salad to get-togethers," says the Barron, Wisconsin cook. "A special event wouldn't be the same without it."
"my whole family enjoys this change-of-pace salad," relates David Wasson, Tulsa, Oklahoma. He adds a fast-to-fix dressing to frozen veggies, olives and onions to make the colorful crunchy medley a hit at any gathering.
"WE HAD an enormous vegetable garden, so we enjoyed freshly picked cucumbers in summer. After the cucumber were sliced and soaked awhile in salt water. Mother added thick cream, which she carefully scooped from the top of some fresh milk."
