I love Pasta salads this time of year. I hate to heat up the kitchen by running the oven, but a good pasta salad can be hard to find. Here's a simple recipe for one that I've made a few times already this year. It's easy and quick!
You can make this ahead of time...just stir before serving. Depending on how far in advance you make it, you might also want to add a little extra mayo just prior to serving as well...
|1||package Betty Crocker® Suddenly Salad® Caesar pasta salad mix|
|1/4||cup mayonnaise or salad dressing|
|2||cups cubed cooked chicken - I grilled mine!|
|1||medium cucumber, coarsely chopped (1 cup)|
|1||medium tomato, seeded and coarsely chopped (3/4 cup) - I use 2 Roma Tomatoes|
- Step 1: Cook and drain contents of uncooked pasta pouch (from salad mix box) as directed on box. Drain pasta; rinse with cold water. Shake well to drain.
- Step 2: In large bowl, stir contents of seasoning & crouton blend pouch (from salad mix box), the mayonnaise and milk until well blended. Stir in cooked pasta and remaining ingredients. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate up to 2 hours before serving.
