Grilled Pasta Salad

19 Jun

Yesterday, my beau told me I’m addicted to pasta salad. Maybe I am… Anyway, I had leftover grilled chicken & veggies from the night before so whipped this up to remix them and came up with this tasty treat. Perfect for a light meal or side dish. Feel free to add or subtract veggies or meats according to your taste & what you have on hand.

Time: 15 minutes + chill               Serves: 4


  • 1 cup (uncooked) short cut pasta, cooked according to instructions.
  • 1 cup grilled chicken, cubed
  • 1 cup grilled asparagus, diced
  • 1 cup grilled zucchini, diced
  • 1 cup Persian cucumber, diced
  • 1 tbsp mayo
  • 1 tbsp Kenzoil: olive oil seasoned with fresh basil & garlic. (If you can’t find this product, just combine 1 tbsp olive oil with about 1 tbsp chopped fresh basil and two minced garlic cloves.)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar & jack cheese
  • handful of chives, snipped
  • sea salt & black pepper, freshly ground – to taste

How to make it

  • Combine ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well. Eat at room temperature or chill to your liking.
