Small Bites - Artichokes

I am resurrecting my blog for Artichokes! :)

Sometime in my PTA past, I remember an old friend always brought her Artichoke salads to potluck get togethers. I wanted to recreate it for small bites. That was my thought when I was at Safeway this morning. Ok, this is not really an appetizer but it can be a first course and served on small plates. :)

So I picked up what I thought were ingredients for this salad. When I got home, I looked online for the recipe. I found out, I was missing a couple of ingrdients, so I went with what I had.

Ingredients (I used)

Jar of artichoke hearts (14.75 oz.)
1 Box of Chicken flavored Rice A Roni (Family Size)
5 stalks green onions (chopped)
1/2 sliced almonds (optional)
1 cup cooked chicken - stripped (optional)
1/2 cup mayonnaise

Procedure:

Cook rice a roni according to directions.
Chop quartered artichokes if smaller size is desired.
Save artichoke marinade.
Mix marinade with mayonnaise to make salad dressing.
Mix all other ingredients to cooked rice.

Refrigerate up to 4 hours before serving.

Suggested ingredients (as found online): Chopped olives and chopped bell peppers.

My son and I sampled the salad right after it was done. It tasted good. I had another serving after it sat for a few hours. It tasted better. :)
