I made this first for a Bridal Shower for my sister-in-law. I made a few changes, based on my tastes. We don't generally have Vidalia Onions here, so I used red onions, they are pretty and flavorful! I added some green peas, for color. Instead of some Ranch salad dressing, I made a "thinned out" ranch dip, with sour cream and ranch dressing powerder with some milk added to it. I thought it added more flavor punch! I also splashed some A1 sauce in the salad as I mixed it up. I couldn't find fusilli pasta so used farfalla (bow tie), this of course didn't change the taste, however it has stuck, and this is what I use now, it is so pretty! Also I used more boullion when boiling the noodles, it gave them a richer chicken flavor. A also add shredded cheddar cheese to it, which really adds some flavor punch.
My family loves this salad, and it is a favorite during the warm summer months, when we like to eat more salads!
