  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain and run under cold water.

  • Toss spaghetti with tomato mixture; fold in chicken. Pour salad dressing over salad; toss to coat. Refrigerate until flavors have blended, about 2 hours.

This is one of my favorite summer salads. To vary it up sometimes I will substitute pepperoni in place of the chicken and use half prepared ranch dressing for half of the italian dressing. This is even better the next day--if you have any leftover that is. Read More

I loved this salad! It was very flavorful and I loved the combination of veggies. My family is not crazy about italian dressing so I only used only about a 1/2 cup instead of the whole bottle and used olive oil for the rest. It was still very tasty. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Read More

I halved the recipe still made a ton. I used grape tomatoes spring onions added celery and fetti noodles. left out the Italian seasoning and used much less Italian seasoning dressing also subbed out cut-up jumbo shrimp for the fowl. ramen noodles or any type of crunchy noodle would be great here. this marinaded @4 hours. a great 1-course meal for a hot and humid day.

Not tried yet but looks mighty good. I might use other pasta instead of spaghetti perhaps corkscrew type or farfale or even in a pinch ziti or elbows. Somehow in my mind it might be easier for little people to handle. Read More
