    Piper Lee's Note:

    I couldn't find this recipe on Zaar so I wanted to share. This salad is full of such a delicious combination of ingredients that it can be used as a main dish, side dish or dessert. The fruit compliments the meat and veggies so well. This is the best pasta salad I've ever tried. When I take it to potlucks it's always a favorite and gone in a flash. Try it! :)

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 24

    Yield:

    1 cup s ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Dressing Ingredients

    • 1 cup sour cream
    • 1 cup mayonnaise (Best Foods or Hellman's is best)
    • 1/2 cup rice wine vinegar (not light)
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 1 teaspoon garlic salt

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook the pasta aldente. DO NOT OVERCOOK. Yuck! Drain and set aside to cool; DO NOT RINSE. This will ensure the sauce sticks to the pasta.
    2. 2
      Cook chicken breasts just until done so they're not dry. Debone if using bone-in; dice up meat. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Chop the celery and onions and add the grapes to these; set aside.
    4. 4
      Drain the mandarine oranges; set aside.
    5. 5
      Make dressing or you can make the dressing the day before and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
    6. 6
      Dressing:.
    7. 7
      In a medium mixing bowl blend together the sour cream, mayonnaise, rice wine vinegar, sugar and garlic salt.
    8. 8
      When the pasta and chicken are cooled, place them in a large mixing or serving bowl and stir together; carefully stir in the celery, onion, grape mixture; now even more carefully stir in the mandarine oranges trying not to break them up too much. When mixed thoroughly add the dressing and mix through. Serve immediatley.
    9. 9
      If you are taking this to a potluck, you may want to wait and add the dressing once you're there so it doesn't break down overly much before serving. Either way this is a terrific salad.
