This recipe is definitely a keeper -- we can't wait to have an excuse to make it again. I used a whole wheat rotini for the pasta, substituted non-fat plain yogurt for the buttermilk in the dressing, and used toasted pecans. We really do not like mayo - so this salad is perfect! I almost didn't add onions, but I'm glad I did -- it added a nice touch. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe with us!

Even my children under age 8 liked this one! I used Buttermilk Dressing #2019 (in which I substituted yogurt for the buttermilk). I also used pecans instead of walnuts and green grapes. A very good chicken salad--especially for those who don't like mayo!

This salad was great for a hot summer day. Because one of my children does not eat nuts, I added sliced kiwi on top of the salad instead. I also added sliced snow peas to the salad. With jell-o for desert it was the perfect summer meal.
