"I made up this salad because our garden is simply overflowing with zucchini! We ate it as a main dish for dinner tonight with Italian seasoning-covered rolls on the side, but it could easily be eaten as a side dish."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Unfortunately I think the name of this recipe is a little misleading and doesn't do the dish justice. Chicken isn't even mentioned and is a glaring omission. Still, as this recipe's first reviewer I couldn't be more pleased to say how much I enjoyed this. It has so many good things going on - chicken, artichokes, black olives, zucchini. It would take a lot to make this dish go wrong! Given there is chicken in this "salad," I made a main dish of it. I also chose to serve it hot rather than chilled. I sauteed the chicken and zucchini separately, adding fresh minced garlic, salt and pepper. I combined that with the remaining ingredients along with some fresh chopped parsley and grape tomatoes . Score! It really was a flavorful medley of well-chosen, compatible ingredients! Not sure I'd like this as much chilled, but that of course could just be a subjective preference. I also think this would have been over the top tossed with a good pasta.
This "salad" was amazing. I agree that it's more of a main dish, and I also added garlic (just a given in my household). I also left out the beans cause the kids don't care for them. I tried it by itself and highly recommend trying this. Afterwards we served the leftovers wrapped in a warmed pita with some creamy dressing. Very good as a wrap too. Will make this again and again :)
I removed the chicken and cheese to make it more veggie focused. Served it warm as a side dish. It was good even with these omissions and changes.
