  • 1 (16 ounce) package farfalle (bow tie) pasta

  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken

  • 2 cups cubed fully cooked ham

  • 2 cups cubed Swiss cheese

  • 1 cup broccoli florets

  • ¼ cup honey

  • 1 ½ cups mayonnaise

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion

  • ½ cup olive oil

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt

  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the bow tie pasta and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.

  2. Combine pasta, chicken, ham, Swiss cheese, and broccoli in a large bowl. Set aside. Blend honey, mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, onion, olive oil, sugar, and garlic salt in a blender. Stir in parsley. Stir dressing into the pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of dressing. Chill salad and reserved dressing in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Stir in the remaining dressing and Parmesan cheese before serving.
