Introduction

The vegetables can marinate for a couple of hours, so all you'll have to do at party time is arrange them on a platter and top with olives and cheese. Immediately place the prepared vegetables in the marinade so they won't discolor. Be sure to use fresh mozzarella, which comes packed in water and is usually found with the specialty cheeses. Coarsely chop leftovers and toss with pasta for a cold salad.

    This would be good but I would think you would want to make the whole artichoke and eat part of it one night and use the heart for this another then you get all the good properties from it - 4/26/10
