Chicken and Pasta Salad With Raw Vegetables

READY IN: 12hrs 30mins
Recipe by Jane from Ohio

This is an outstanding dish. It looks so appetizing on a platter. It is so colorful with the red tomatoes, green pepper and the cheese colored croutons. It's a great dish to take to a potluck or serve on a hot summer day. I got this recipe about 10 years ago from Doddi at work. There is a 12 chilling I included as cooking time.

Great combination of flavors and textures in this salad. I made this recipe as listed, but used Lawry's Herb & Garlic with lemon juice Marinade - our small town grocery did not have a herb & garlic dressing. Worked just fine. I poached my chicken breasts in broth to cook them for this salad. I would agree with Bobtail - this is also a very attractive salad.
