This has been a big hit with both family and friends. I omitted the salami and cooked my chicken in olive oil and garlic. I have made this four times now and it's always gone in a flash. I think next time I'll try using small shells and just mixing it all up together to save me the time of stuffing them. Using sea shell pasta is great when you don't have time to stuff the larger shells. Same great taste!

Really easy, simple dish that's just different enough to be impressive too. I made these for a party and they were a definite hit. I'll most definitely be making this again.

I love this dish! It's really a great idea. I served this as a side dish for dinner instead of waiting for a barbeque or party. I will be making this over the summer. Thanks!

Fantastic! Made them as stated and loved them. The presentation is brilliant. I have been branching out and stuffing the shells with all sorts of cold salads (chicken and tuna salad work well with these also). Thank you so much for posting this recipe.

I was a bit skeptical that it would be good, b/c there’s no sauce for the shells. However I do trust the ratings. =) It turned out great, very light. I didn’t add any chicken and used Italian dressing instead. I’m definitely making this for my next party or potluck, great finger food- did I mention, very light in calories.. Thank you!!

What can i say that hasn't already been said...Just AWESOME!!! I took these to a Superbowl party and EVERYONE raved about them...By the end of the night, I had given the recipe to almost everyone there. I love the flavors in these shells. All the ingredients pair sooo well with one another. The ONLY thing is I had to make another FULL batch of the filling as I had no where near enough for all of the shells. Mine looked pretty identical to the pictures posted so I don't think I was overstuffing the shells...Just an FYI for anyone making these. Another thing that is nice about them is they are great for a summer party being mayo free. I will DEFINITELY be making these again!!! I even shared this recipe in the Weight Watchers message boards because they are very good for you and only 2 PTS per shell. Thank you Yooper for a real WINNER!!

This was well received at a work Christmas party with many positive comments. I subbed pepperoni for the salami and added some cubed cheddar. I stuffed these the night before but don't recommend that. Thanks for a unique recipe.

This is the most ingenious, delicious dish I've had in quite a while. I absolutely fell in love with the idea of a finger food salad. I made a large finger food spread for NY's and this went faster than any other dish. Only changes I made were to omit the tomatoes, added corn nibblits, and used a family vinaigrette recipe. I will be making this for many parties to come!
