  • 1
    In small saucepan, combine beets and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 8 to 12 minutes or until beets are tender. Drain. Rinse with cold water to cool; peel and dice.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in 1 1/2-quart glass bowl, layer broccoli, 1/4 cup of the salad dressing, yellow bell pepper, cooked beets, green bell pepper, onion and quartered artichoke hearts. Top with cheese. Cover; refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.

    Just before serving, top with remaining 1/2 cup salad dressing. To serve, use long-handled serving spoons to reach all layers.

Expert Tips

  • Canned diced beets can be used in place of the fresh beets.
  • To reduce the fat in each serving of this salad by about 14 grams, use low-fat ranch dressing and reduced-fat Cheddar cheese.
  • A clear, straight-sided glass bowl shows off the beautiful colors of this layered salad. Garnish it with sprigs of fresh herbs and red bell pepper cut with a small flower-shaped cutter.
