Mom's Chicken Pasta Salad

Submitted by: LIMITEDGRACE
Mom's Chicken Pasta Salad

Introduction

This is a lighter version of my mom's almost-famous pasta salad. It's a summer classic in our family and great as a side dish or a meal on it's own. This is a lighter version of my mom's almost-famous pasta salad. It's a summer classic in our family and great as a side dish or a meal on it's own.

  • I used a whole package of frozen mixed veggies in mine. You don't even have to cook them - the crunch adds a nice contrast to the pasta! - 1/22/12

  • This was really good...I used fat free mayo instead just because I don't like Miracle Whip but it was good nonetheless. Could use some other seasoning but I'm not sure what? - 6/26/08

    If you're using mayo, I would suggest seasoning to taste with maybe some paprika and maybe some Lawry's seasoned salt.

  • This was great, thank you! I added about twice the peas and celery... I like my salad loaded. I also sprinkled in some 50% less Fat Hormel bacon bits. Yum! - 6/14/08
