A good salad can really turn “light” into delicious. While the main course of any meal is certainly considered the star of the show, a good side dish can really make or break your entire dining experience.
Luckily, this chicken pasta salad recipe will give you and your family a refreshing, tasty treat that’s a creamy treat for all ages.
This Chicken Pasta Salad was actually made by me and my daughter for Father’s Day. Few things are better than spending time with family in the kitchen. Even better than watching my family enjoy what I do, being able to do it with them! Not only do we get delicious recipes, but we also create wonderful memories that I am sure I will cherish, especially when my children have their own family.
The creaminess of a good chicken pasta salad comes from the nice clean flavor of a good mayonnaise. For this recipe, my daughter and I used 15 ounces of real Lady’s Choice mayonnaise to achieve the desired and delicious taste. The mild tangy mayonnaise pairs well with all the other ingredients in this chicken and pasta salad. Assorted carrots, onions, sweet marinade, pineapple, cheddar cheese and sugar blend harmoniously for a light, fruity and flavorful salad! Lots of flavors and joy await you when you cook this with your loved ones.
On Father’s Day, I enjoyed this chicken and pasta salad with a creamy spaghetti dish and juicy, flavorful fried lempo with BBQ sauce. Indeed, the light and rich taste of this salad perfectly complements the beautiful and smoky piece of meat. Another popular pairing is chicken salad with pasta and crispy, golden brown fried chicken. This magnificent meat pairs perfectly with a creamy salad that overpowers the salty taste.
