{Recipe} Chicken Salad (with pasta and veggies)


Right after college, while looking for a job in my field, I worked in a shopping mall. I didn’t have much time to have lunch or dinner, so I usually just ate a salad at a salad bar called Vitaminas (click here to see some samples of their salads).

Since then, 7 years ago {ouch!}, I’ve only had one of their salads maybe a half dozen times. Today I was craving one so I decided to make it at home. And it’s really easy too.

So, for one salad like this one,


You’ll need:
– Handful of romaine lettuce
– Handful of baby spinach
– 1 cup of cooked pasta – I prefer fusilli
– 1/3 cup of cooked corn
– 1/3 cup of cooked peas
– 6/7 cherry tomatoes
– about 1/2 cup of grilled chicken breast, cut into strips
– dressing of your choice – we use a salad “salsa light” from Linessa (only 18cals per tablespoon)

And there’s really no need for directions. Just assemble it using a big bowl or plate and you’re good to go! I didn’t have anything grilled or cooked and it only took me about 15 minutes since I started preparing lunch up to when we sat down to eat it. I love salads and this one is so satisfying, it’s amazing! =)

Have a great Friday!!

I’ll be sharing this post on some of the websites listed here.

    I’ve never tried any salads that have pasta in them. They look really good but I’m afraid the texture of lettuce and pasta together will freak me out!
