This is a recipe from a Chef's Journey...Home, so some of you have it, but don't know if anyone has made it. I got a hunger for it to go with our steak today and I had what I thought was a jar of Marinara from Laura. Turned out to be Roasted Pepper Salsa. So, went ahead with it and I'm really surprised at how tasty the salad is. I just may do this again.

If anyone wants the recipe - since it's about time to start thinking about side salads, I'll post it.

The added bonus for this salad is I just made 1/2 the recipe and still got two nice bowls out of it for 2 dinners!! a good thing - one will stay in the fridge so someone won't be tempted to go overboard.....

P.S. - full disclosure: had some leftover kidney beans in fridge, so added them. recipe doesn't call for, but what the heck.

Jean, I have made your recipe from A Chef's Journey...Home and my family loved it. There was another recipe you gave me one time for a pasta salad that you used to use for catering and I can't remember the name of it but the family really went wild over that one because it had cheese in it and I'm thinking it might have had pepperoni, too.

Yes, that's the one! I just didn't remember the tortellini part. I made that for a large family gathering and it was the hit of the party. I'm going to keep this recipe on my desk so that I remember to make it for my dad's birthday party in May.

Jean, do you leave the artichoke hearts whole? And I prefer black olives. Does it matter?

The artichokes, I rough chop and I normally used Kalamata or a small can of sliced black olives.
