I used to care for an elderly woman who loved artichokes, so I created this salad especially for her. Not only is it convenient to make with bottled Italian dressing, but you can dress it up with salad shrimp, too.—Melissa Mosness, Loveland, Colorado
We love this easy yet elegant dish with its subtle flavor. Serve with a rice pilaf for a quick and easy gourmet meal! You can also use turkey cutlets, fish fillets or seafood. For a special meal, make it with chicken and shrimp.
I put together this fast five-ingredient salad after sampling a similar mixture from a salad bar. Bottled Italian dressing gives robust flavor to this simple treatment for canned artichoke hearts. It is a snap to make as a last-minute side dish.

My family loves artichoke spinach dip, so I thought I could turn this popular appetizer into a chicken entree. The sourdough bowl makes a fun presentation. I love that with this recipe I can make one for dinner and wrap one for the freezer!—Merry Graham, Newhall, California
I developed this recipe one Saturday night when I wanted to make something a little nicer, but with minimal time in the kitchen. I'd tried something similar at a restaurant a few weeks earlier. It's a great way to use leftover grilled chicken...or you can use purchased grilled chicken strips.
"This is a snap to make, thanks to store-bought pizza dough...and the kids love it," writes Andrea Jones of McKinney, Texas. TIP: "You can use just about any pizza topping as filling to suit different tastes," Andrea writes.
“I found this recipe more than 15 years ago, and it has been requested every time I’ve been invited to a party,” writes Robin Klawinski of Eagle, Idaho. Since this dip is heated in the microwave instead of the oven, it can be ready to serve guests in mere minutes.
