      This is great! I had leftover rotisserie chicken, so I chopped it up, sprinkled with taco seasoning and sauteed for a few minutes in a little olive oil. I also added some sliced green onion to the salad. This is a very nice and different pasta salad and I know that I will be making it a lot over the summer.
