This is an easy recipe that can be prepared ahead of time. Great for those hot summer days! Also good with a herb and garlic dressing, or a Caesar type dressing. If preparing ahead of time, mix all together just before serving.

We really enjoyed this one. I used sweet grape tomatoes cut in halves instead of the plum tomatoes (for a sweeter taste) and used Vadilia onion dressing instead of Italian. The feta cheese is a nice touch and my whole family loved it. A nice sweet tasting pasta salad. Thanks Spaggie! Read More

Very nice! I marinated my chicken for about an hour and then grilled it. I also finely minced about 1/4 cup of sweet onion and about half of a sweet red pepper. I also tossed in a few sliced baby portobellos I had left over plus a couple of extra splashed of dressing for the added veggie volume. Read More

I thought this was delicious. I also used a little fresh squeezed lemon on the chicken and it gave it a little more flavor. Very good! Read More

Thank goodness for the Italian dressing or this salad wouldn't have had much taste. I do agree -- the feta cheese was a nice touch. And it is a good quick recipe for those hot summer nights. But next time I may season the chicken strips differently (maybe with more kick like cajun spices?). Read More

I tried something a little different with this. I am on a low-fat diet so I used 2 tablespoons of Italian Pesto salad dressing(instead of the feta cheese) and then 1/4 cup of fat-free Italian dressing. I also added garlic powder red pepper flakes black pepper and basil to the pasta. The recipe tasted great even without the feta and parmesan cheese. Read More

Great easy recipe. Next time I will cook my chicken in the Italian dressing rather than mixing it into the pasta. Read More
