Recipe Group Selection: 22 March 2014 Loved it! We liked everything about this salad. I used mini rotini pasta and I had Roma tomatoes on hand that was my only substitution. I mixed everything up and let the ingredients marry for about 30 minutes before serving. The avocado adds a lot of flavor and texture to this salad so don't be tempted to leave it out. We thought a little onion would add additional flavor to this salad. I served this with 'Biscuits with Blue Cheese' from AR and we had a delicious meal. Thanks Lane J for sharing your recipe it is a keeper. Read More

Sounded so good but not a fan. Maybe it's the mayo and Italian salad dressing combo? Too bland for my taste. Read More

I found this pasta salad using the AR ingredient search tool. I had a chicken breast leftover from grilling to use up so used that instead of rotisserie chicken. I do make my own Italian dressing and really loved the addition of mayo for a creamy tasty dressing and the amount was perfect for the ingredients. I only had six slices of bacon but it was plenty for us and the avocado was a nice addition also. I'm sure I'll make this one again since we all really liked it. Read More

Recipe Group Selection for March 22 2014 I m always looking for a complete and satisfying one dish meal during the hot summer months that is not only appealing to the eye but to the taste buds as well. This recipe is faultless. The combination of flavors marries well without competing with each other and the different textures add to the complexity. I m delighted this was selected for the Recipe Group because I may not have noticed this recipe thus missing a dish that will be a regular in my summer meal rotation. Read More

Made for Recipe Group. Lovely main dish salad. The combo of mayo and Italian dressing made it taste like Ranch. Hubby got introduced to an avocado which he says he has never eaten before. Used some chunks of Monteray Jack cheese and tri-color rotini. Pretty and delicious! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

To my homemade Italian salad dressing I added 1 tsp. chili powder and 1 tsp. cumin. To salad I added 5 green onions chopped 1 bunch cilantro. Substituted sharp cheddar cheese for muenster. HUGE hit with 6 adults (4 of whom are my kids/girlfriends). Definite make-again! Thanks for a great way to use chicken! Read More

Made this for Recipe Group...We LOVED this salad! I used a 12oz. box of tri-color rotini and omitted the celery. I used all of the other ingredients but sort of eye-balled them to taste. The whole family gobbled this up...a definite keeper YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Recipe group pick that I made late but had to try. I halved this and we got almost four servings (2 dinner 2 lunch). I had to mix it up a few hours ahead of time and didn't use all of the dressing because it looked like too much. The dressing pretty much disappeared into the pasta so I served the rest of it with the meal. Next time I would not dress it ahead of time just so that I could possibly use less. My only subs were homemade dressing vegan mayo and sharp cheddar. I think we would try this again as is and also as a lettuce salad instead of pasta. Read More
