It's been awhile since I've joined in Gollum's pot luck Foodie Friday. Today I'm sharing a new recipe I tried this week as I change gears from soups to salads now that warmer weather is here.
This was a delightful salad that Mr. Mid-Atlantic and I both enjoyed - perfect for something a little different from the usual pasta salads.
2 skinless boneless chicken breast halves - cut into bite-sized pieces (cooked - I grilled ours)
1 (16 oz) pkg. uncooked Farfalle (bow tie) pasta
1/2 lb. frozen cooked coctail shrimp (next time I'll add a little more than this)
1 (2.25 oz) can sliced black olives, drained
1 pint cherry tomatoes halved
1/2 cup celery chopped (or baby carrots if you prefer)
1 cucumber diced
1/2 cup Greek salad dressing (or Italian, oil & Vinegar....you get the idea)
1 (6 oz) pkg feta cheese crumbles
seasonings to taste
Bring large pot of water to a boil - add pasta and cook 8-10 minutes - drain and cool to room temperature.
Mix chicken. pasta, shrimp, olives, tomatoes, celery and cucumber. Toss with dressing and feta cheese and seasonings.
