Artichoke Rice Salad

Print Friendly and PDF

Here's a recipe for a salad that I recently made for my grand-daughter's birthday party.  It has Rice-a-Roni in it, which you can make in the microwave to speed up the preparation.  This was one of my favorite salads from years ago.

2 pkgs. chicken flavored Rice-A-Roni
2 green onions, chopped finely
12-15 green olives with pimentoes, sliced
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
2 small roma tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 tsp. curry
2 jars of marinated artichoke hearts, drained
2-3 T balsamic vinegar
Salt, pepper (to taste)

Microwave the Rice-A-Roni according to the directions on the package. Prepare the rest of the ingredients. Mix everything together. Adjust seasoning accordingly. Refrigerate until serving time. This recipe can be made a day in advance.

Here's my sweet grand-daughter, Madeline, and her birthday cake.
