This salad is very unique and tasty. The feta cheese and artichoke hearts give nice sharp bite to the pasta. It is a great addition to any get together. The recipe comes from my sweet friend Katherine. She does not have a sharp bite, or harsh word to say about anyone. She’s a sweet gal raising some beautiful kids. And I mean beautiful!
