This pretty crowd-pleaser always stands out on the buffet table. With plenty of shrimp, artichoke hearts, olives, peppers and a host of herbs, it's a tasty change-of-pace from pasta salads. I serve it with a from-scratch vinaigrette.—Ginger Johnson, Pottstown, Pennsylvania

"Delightful ! I made this the other day, cut it down from 8 servings to somewhere around 3, which works well with a recipe like this. One thing that I was wondering about is that the blurb from this recipe's creator, Ginger Johnson, mentions green olives, but the recipe ingredients list Greek olives, which are ripe... so I went with both ! The dressing I used was Farmer Boy's Restaurant Greek Dressing, an oil based selection. Truly a good salad ! As a field editor who hosts at least ten major parties each year, I know I will be serving this one again soon."
