Lettuce Chicken Pasta Salad is a very versatile salad and great for dinner, especially during summer time.
You can make this recipe with pasta, that you make ahead of time, and shredded rotisserie chicken meat. Then, combine everything together just before serving.
If you have leftover of both pasta and chicken or either one, this is another great way to use it up.
Besides, you can pair it with different salad dressing. Here are some that I highly recommend, such as Cesar, Ranch and Italian.
Prep Time: 5 Minutes Cook Time: 20 Minutes Serving: 4-6
I personally want to take the advantage of some pre-washed vegetables. That's why I used whatever available in the market that day.
You could use romaine lettuce and/or grape tomatoes. You can even add some nuts or croutons to add some crunch to the salad.
To load this pasta salad with more vegetables and fibers, use vegetable based or whole grain pasta.
See, there are tons of ways to add your special touch to this salad and make it your own. Enjoy!
