DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • Cook chicken breasts just until done so they're not dry. Debone if using bone-in; dice up meat. Set aside.
  • Chop the celery and onions and add the grapes to these; set aside.
  • Drain the mandarine oranges; set aside.
  • Make dressing or you can make the dressing the day before and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Dressing:.
  • In a medium mixing bowl blend together the sour cream, mayonnaise, rice wine vinegar, sugar and garlic salt.
  • 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.
  • 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.
