Cool Chicken Pasta Salad

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Linda

This is a light and tasty salad which can be used as a main dish. I have shared it at church potlucks, and I think it would also be good at a bridal shower or ladies' luncheon.

Wow! This is a lot of fun and the flavors are completely unexpected. I substituted turkey for chicken and strawberries in place of the grapes. This is a recipe you can play with the ingredients a bit and have it still taste terrific. Thank you for sharing! Reviewed for A Day in Bargain Basement 2011.
