This is my go-to pasta salad for summer get-togethers! It's so good, and super easy to put together. Great for make-ahead meals, too. Just a note, this is a BIG recipe. It's meant to feed quite a few people, so the measurements can be cut back to whatever amounts fit your needs. I hope you love it as much as I do! :D

How to Make Crunchy Chicken Pasta Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Place cooked, shredded chicken into a large mixing bowl. (For this step, I have a big bowl that I use for mixing and for serving.) Let chicken cool.
  2. Add in defrosted peas, sliced almonds, and cooked, drained pasta to bowl with chicken. (Be sure that pasta has had the chance to cool as well.)
  3. Mix all dressing ingredients together, and add to bowl with chicken-pasta mixture. Mix well until all ingredients are thoroughly coated. Refrigerate for about an hour or so, or overnight, to let the flavors meld together.
  4. Best served cold or at room temperature.
