Artichoke, Cheese and Olive Antipasto

Rated as 4.56 out of 5 Stars

"A great way to start your Italian meal! I usually serve it with crusty bread slices that have been toasted in the oven until crisp for dipping into the marinade. Keeps for a week in the refrigerator and the longer it stands the better it gets!"

This was really good and an excellent offering to take camping as it holds well in the cooler and does get better upon sitting, even after four days. I put everything in a zip-lock bag and didn...

Great recipe. I added some salami and proscuitto as well as some other marinated veggies.

I put the first three ingredients into a food processor for a few seconds. Fast and easy.

Since I was "pot-lucking" this and not serving/garnishing, I added the basil to the dressing. Because some in the group don't tolerate oregano well, I substituted thyme. I couldn't find smoked...

This is a versatile salad. I didn't use marinated artichokes, I used canned, drained artichokes & so didn't have a problem with excess liquid. I also didn't measure the oil & vinegar, just used ...
