Must say it was not a hit at all! Not sure why...followed recipe exactly..maybe a unique blend of favors? Just tasted "something" we did not enjoy at all;Definitely deleting from my saved recipes as will not make again!
This was absolutely delicious! I substituted broccoli for the green peppers to humor my children and I think it made it even better!
i had a lot of left over havarti cheese after company left so i looked for a recipe w/ havarti. this was great! Really, the 'Best Ever Pasta Salad'. I didn't have bow tie pasta on hand so used small shells. I'm a vegetarian and it is very good w/o the chicken. I plan to make it again for the holidays because it is also a very good looking salad - I think I will double the amount of pimento to add more red color.
I took this to a family party and got good comments on it. I enjoyed the mixture of flavors. I will probably make this again in the future. The only things I might change would be to increase the pasta to 2.5 cups and decrease the chicken by 1/2. There was a lot! Thanks for a great recipe!
I made a couple minor changes, but this still came out very tasty. I substituted thawed frozen peas for the green pepper (food allergy) and instead of using regular chicken breast, I used a large bag of Tyson precooked, precut grilled chicken breast strips. My oven was out, but I think I'll probably keep this change just for convenience.
The dressing is wonderful--but 3 cups pasta was necessary for good ingredient balance. Adding chopped pepperoncini was a big improvement.
We modified this slightly with cheese we had on-hand. However the dressing for this salad is what really makes it! We're definitely keeping this recipe around for the summer months!
