Chicken Pasta Salad

Chicken Pasta Salad

  • 2 cups shell macaroni, boiled until tender. Drain and cool.
  • 3 cups cubed boiled chicken breast
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • ? small jar of pimentos (drained)
  • One-half cup frozen peas, if desired
  • Chopped onion to taste, if desired
  • Chopped hard boiled egg, if desired
  • Chopped green or red grapes, if desired

My mom and I pretty much make our pasta salad dressing without a recipe.  Here are the ingredients with approximate amounts because we mix and add until it tastes good. You will want to make enough to cover the salad ingredients so it isn’t dry.

Dressing:  Miracle Whip salad dressing with a little sugar and a little vinegar or pickle juice and a little half-n-half (cream/milk).  I would start with about a cup and a half of Miracle Whip salad dressing and add the other ingredients to taste.  If you need more, start over with a half cup of Miracle Whip and other ingredients to taste.

Mom didn’t put salt in the salad but if you think it needs some, just add it to satisfy your taste.
