I could eat a gallon of this at least once a week! What a delicious change from the ordinary chicken pasta salad. From Gourmet Magazine, July 1990.

Hi there, I am not surprised that you eat a lot of this as it is very yummy I couldn't stop eating it. I followed the recipe but I would of loved a lot more of that wonderful sauce, I do like a lot of sauce when I have something like this. the balance of the flavours was spot on very very good. The change from ordinary chicken pasta is that this actually has a lovely taste, sometimes pasta salad is so bland, this was most definitely not bland. well done, it's a wonderful recipe and I know it will become one of my regulars.
