Cliff and Georjean Thaell showed up at a pot-luck supper across the street not long ago, and Georjean brought a scrumptious potato & artichoke salad:
Let's see. I boiled potatoes. Actually, made it out of what I had available. I love to create like that. It's so fun.[Edit 4/13/10: I've really been wanting to make the salad. Scouted Publix and New Leaf, but found no Kirkland's artichoke hearts. It seems that Cara Mia Kirkland Signature Marinated Artichoke Hearts can only be found on the shelf at Costco or Sam's, in a large, 65 oz. jar. One vendor says, "The Cara Mia brand marinade is a proprietary recipe and has many devotees who use both the artichokes and the marinade in a variety of recipes". Marinated artichoke hearts have to be well-trimmed to be good. Often one gets pithy outer leaves left on. I had a feeling that I dare not make the salad with another brand. I will have to visit Sam's.]
Boiled new potatoes
Kirkland's marinated artichokes
organic spinach (raw)
sliced red bell pepper
a touch of salt, pepper and garlic powder
Put everything in bowl, quantities according to desired taste, adding some of the marinade from the artichokes last.
I mix it with my hands and love.
