Chicken Pasta Salad Recipe & a Giveaway!

Wednesday, May 13, 2015

***THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED***

We are already enjoying our lunches & dinners on the deck; something I look forward to all winter long.  The grill is fired up almost every night and Mr. and I stroll the garden to see what's changed each day.  School's almost out for our high schooler and our schedule will slow down considerably, yay!  My guys love their pasta salads so I usually make one or two a week.  Pasta salads are so versatile and can either be the main course or a delicious side dish paired with whatever you're grilling.

When I make a pasta salad, I usually chop up a few veggies and toss in a handful of herbs.  Suddenly Salad makes it even easier because the dressing comes with the pasta and you can have it ready in a jiffy!  I used it to make this salad and customized it to feed our family.


I used classic Suddenly Salad  to make this salad and it was a hit!


To add nutrients, I always add a mix of colorful veggies.  This time I used a cup of grape tomatoes, half of each yellow & green pepper, and a rotisserie chicken.



Chop the peppers, halve the tomatoes, and rough chop the chicken.  I used two boxes of Suddenly salad so we would have leftovers.  It's the perfect thing to grab for a quick lunch or a snack for hungry kiddos.


Make your salad according to directions and toss it all together.  This took around 20 minutes.  Done! Oh, and a few herbs on top as a garnish make it look fancy ;).


Try my recipe and use this coupon for 50 cents off two boxes of Suddenly Salad.  If you shop at Publix you can use these coupons.
