Thank the Lord for our wonderful little pool, that is the only way you can be outside with these temps. When we come in I just want something light and good. This is one of my favorite go to salads.
Chicken Pasta Salad
This is the kind of salad where you clean out the fridge and add anything you have leftover.
1 can Chicken Breast meat
1 box Bow Tie pasta
Cook the pasta and drain well. Put in the fridge to cool, then add the chicken and chopped onions and tomatoes. Take 1/2 cup ranch dressing and dilute with milk to a really thin consistency. Pour over salad and mix well.
This is where you clean out the fridge. I had some leftover sliced olives, green onions, hard boiled eggs and bacon so I added them to the salad. I serve it on a bed of shredded lettuce drizzled with a little more dressing as a meal, or leave it plain as a side dish.
So easy and such a light and filling meal sure to please anyone.
