    Christina P's Note:

    On a hot summer day, my husband and I were craving a cold pasta salad as a main dish. Regular pasta salad was not filling enough, so we decided to add some protein: chicken and cubed cheese. This recipe is "semi-homemade" as it uses Suddenly Salad, but the end results was delicious! My whole family loves it! It makes a large batch, perfect for home or potluck. One batch might last a day in this household! The beauty of this recipe, is that you can change the type of Suddenly Salad, and the cheese, and create something different! For example, a southwestern flair using the Chipotle style Suddenly Salad and pepper jack cheese, or a Greek style with Feta and Greek Suddenly Salad! Or, make it vegetarian and trade the chicken for firm tofu! So many choices to make it your own.
