Artichoke and Hearts of Palm Salad 3Artichoke and Hearts of Palm Salad 5Sometimes dinner around here is what I have on hand.  Always a good reason to have a well-stocked pantry!  These occasions happen especially the week school starts.  For us that was last week and it resulted in this Artichoke and Hearts of Palm Quinoa Salad.  It was a huge hit and I’ll be making again and again.

(The dressing is our absolute favorite available online or at your local Central Market or Whole Foods).

If you have kids, too, I hope they had a great back to school today or whenever they go back…By the way, what happened to after Labor Day!?!?
