Chicken and Pasta Salad

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by lazyme

From Delicious Ways to Lower Cholesterol, this is a nice entree salad. Plan ahead as it needs to marinate for a couple of hours for the best flavor.

I made this with broiled chicken breast for my elderly aunt and some of her friends yesterday. Everyone enjoyed the salad and wanted the recipe. One change I made was to pour the dressing on everything while the chicken and pasta were still warm. I always do that because I think that helps the ingredients soak up some of the great flavors from the dressing. I served it with french onion soup as a starter and warm french bread with herb butter. I'm planning to make this often as the weather gets warmer.
