With chicken, pasta and veggies, this makes a great all-in-one meal! A box of Betty Crocker® Suddenly Salad® classic pasta salad mix is used for the base. Just add grilled chicken, fresh spinach, cherry tomatoes, cheese, chopped hard-boiled eggs and celery, bacon, and a mayo/honey mustard dressing that's been mixed with the seasoning mix from the pasta salad kit. Found this recipe in one of those little Betty Crocker® cookbooks at the checkout. It was titled Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken Salad, but the amount of honey mustard in it is so small, it's hard to tell it's even in there. To lower the fat, use fat-free mayo, low-fat cheese and turkey bacon.
