80--- Marinated Artichoke Salad

Artichokes are native to the Mediterranean. One large California artichoke contains only 25 calories, but tons of antioxidants and 6 g of fiber!

This salad is a great side dish. Allow to sit in the refrigerator overnight for the best flavor.

Marinated Artichoke Salad
Serves 6

3 cups frozen quartered artichoke hearts, steamed until tender, then chilled for 15 minutes

1 cup small black olives

1/2 cup sliced banana peppers

1 large or 2 medium tomatoes, seeded and diced

1/4 cup white wine vinegar

2 Tbsp canola oil

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp dried oregano

1/4 tsp dried parsley

1 tsp dried basil

1/2 tsp salt

Whisk together vinegar, oil, and seasonings. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat. Place in refrigerator overnight prior to serving.
