Scrumptious Chicken Salad

A great salad for the warm weather months. Works beautifully for luncheon buffets, too. The combination of flavors and textures is perfect.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta, al dente, drain and rinse with cold water; drain well.
  2. Blend mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  3. Drain pineapple, saving juice.
  4. Gently stir all ingredients together, adding as much of the reserved pineapple juice as needed to moisten.

We really liked this salad, great flavours (even on a Spring day!) I used bowtie pasta and added a little finely chopped red onion as well. Thanks for posting.

Good recipe, I really liked the pineapple in this, it added a nice, fresh taste. Next time I will add chopped red onion or maybe a dash of curry or cayenne just because our family enjoys having a little zing in our food. I am going to keep this in my favorites because I think it'll be great for luncheons, showers, etc. Thank you Donna for posting such a tasty recipe.
