Very quick and easy! Made with leftover grilled chicken and whole grain pasta. I love avocado and this was a tasty salad to use it in. Made for My Three Chefs Tag.

The main beauty of a pasta salad is its flexability. They are multi-generational, ingredient-friendly & make-ahead easy-fixes - Popular for almost all occasions - And easily expand to allow for personal preferences. This one was near-perfect for us. I added black olives & was good-to-go. Served w/fruit only, it made a great dinner meal & I esp liked that it did not require any mayo that is common to most pasta salads. Congrats on another Football Pool win & thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
