I can't believe anything this healthy can taste so good! Truly, this is one of the best things I've ever eaten. This recipe is very liberally adapted from one shown on Australia's version of Good Chef Bad Chef. The original poached a whole chicken, but I just bought a cooked chicken from the shop and 'cheated' with the poaching. It was still deeee-licious!
This came from one of my new cookbooks with recipes from around the United States. This one happened to be from New Mexico, which I thought was ironic because it's got Santa Fe in the title. Upon reading the description, the contributer owned a restaurant in Texas and upon retirement moved to New Mexico. This was claimed to be an exclusive and very popular salad. Passive time is chill time.
Found on a bunch of fresh organic asparagus from where else but California! I made a few changes and added some other things to the original recipe. The Thousand Island dressing was found off the website apinchof.com.
Very easy to make once ingredients are assembled. This recipe is is great for pot lucks picnics, informal dinner parties, and other get togethers. A very delicious pasta salad that has many "pastabilities".
