Pasta Salad Recipe — with Chicken

Here’s an Easy Pasta Salad Recipe.  This one with grilled chicken!

This  is one of the College Boy’s favorite foods.  He made a surprise trip home this weekend so we made a batch of Pasta Salad today and sent him back with a big container of it.

This recipe makes several servings of pasta salad.  Since it keeps for a few days in the refrigerator, we make it with an entire box of pasta.  It ALWAYS gets eaten up.  And, the dressing acts as a marinade, so this recipe tastes better the day after you make it.

My family is always on the lookout for new (and easy) recipes to try.  We get tired of eating the same old things every week.

A recent web-surfing session landed on a on site that (for the life of me I can’t remember).  Ever have that happen to you?  Ha!  I’m sure you have.

As soon as I figure out where I got this, I will give proper credit.  I promise.

But for now, add this to your arsenal of food planning tools.  It’s easy, and really, really good.

We added sweet corn and a make-it-yourself salad as side dishes tonight.  The boys both said they liked it — a lot.  That is a HUGE compliment to the creator of this tasty dish. :-)

Try it and let me know what you think!
