I was surprised not to see this salad already posted on Zaar. We really enjoy this salad, especially in the summertime, and have been making it for about 20 years. I hope you like it too!

I used canned chicken as that was what I had on hand. Really enjoyed the dill in this sald. Makes a lot and is a nice change from the normal macaroni salad..

WOW! This is a bit different than the summer pasta salad I regularly make but it went over like a bulldozer this weekend. I love the taste of dill in the salad. Unsure of Dh and the rest of the gang but they inhaled it! I used medium shells as opposed to large as that is on hand at the cottage. It was a clean up weekend from the storms and tornado mess so all the workers were thrilled to not have to go and make anything. Served with hamburgers. I will dfinitely make this again as a change from the recipe I have used more than 30 years. (passed down from MIL) Made for the Shady Ladies ZWT2011.
