Whenever I make this Chicken Pasta salad my family is elated! They seriously look forward to eating this stuff! I guess that’s always a good sign that this is great recipe. This Chicken Pasta Salad recipe is a perfect potluck dish for any time of year. With the holidays coming up, you could add some cranberries to it to give it that festive taste and look! I really like making it in the summer though. It makes a great side salad for all those summer barbecues.
