This is a great cold salad dish with little preparation time. It has a Greek flair to it and is delicious. I always come home with an empty dish. The key to it is using fresh tomatoes if you have them. Hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

I made this for an office potluck. Since it is a cold dish I did not need to worry about the heating, etc. Nice vegetarian dish. Good cold or hot. I added pine nuts for some extra crunch. Read More

I made a few changes I used orzo instead of rice and halved cherry tomatoes. The salad is definitely better if its refrigerated overnight. If I made this again I'd add Parmesan cheese for some extra flavor. Read More

I contributed this dish as a vegan offering for my family's Thanksgiving dinner. It was a hit with vegans as well as with carnivores. Great dish for potluck, and very very easy. Read More

Yum! I just tried this for the first time and its a keeper. I only had a jar of regular un-marinated artichokes so I needed to add a little greek dressing. I also added some pine nuts as suggested by someone's review. I am planning to make this again and soon. Read More

I thought this a little bland. I try to make the recipe as written the first time I make it but I did not have any black olives. I used green olives which is what I had on hand and some fresh basil. I also added a little balsamic vinegar and some freshly grated parmesan cheese which really boosted the flavor. Thanks so much for posting the recipe. Read More

I gave it 4 stars because "as is" it needs a little bit of something. I added pine nuts as others suggested. I also added a dash more lemon juice and a liberal amount of greek seasoning. The seasoning really helped the overall flavor. Also I used about half of the olives and I would by chopped or halved olives. Whole olives was a bit too much. Overall it was a big hit at a party.

Very tasty! I've made this recipe many times as a side dish or as a vegetarian wrap. I add toasted pine nuts too. I also like adding roasted red pepper to the mix for some extra color. Read More

Had a chance to make this salad last minute when needed for a picnic... Added some feta cheese cubed as well as italian dressing instead of using the artichoke marinade (my artichokes were only canned salted). Very good and easy when out of other ingredients... Read More

This was a wonderful rice salad! I ended up adding a cut up cucumber that I had leftover and that was a nice addition. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
