Expert Tips

Sun-dried tomatoes have had most of their moisture dried away, leaving intense tomato flavor. They are sold dry in bulk or in jars in oil marinade. Use marinated sun-dried tomatoes to give this salad lots of tomato taste.

To reduce the fat in each serving of this salad by about 8 grams, use low-fat sour cream and low-fat mayonnaise.

For more Mediterranean flavor, add a jar of marinated artichoke hearts to this salad; drain and coarsely chop the artichoke hearts before you add them.
