Delicious I have made this twice already; my husband and I really enjoyed it. I made a few substitutions which I don't think materially changed it (you might disagree). I worked from the print magazine two-page spread which I highly recommend. Substitutions: buttermilk dressing from the article instead of the vinaigrette celery instead of fennel 1/4 c dill relish instead of chopped pepperoncini included the marinade from the artichokes (which I cut a bit smaller than their quartered state) cubed the cheese used chickpeas instead of cannellini beans and ziti instead of shells. I highly recommend it - so much better than a traditional pasta salad! Pros: Can make ahead Cons: Lots of prep work Read More
