Chicken Pasta Salad, low-fat - meat

Posted by : Lita

Pasta with its complex carbohydrates marries very well with high protein
chicken or turkey, making this salad a satisfying nutritious meal in itself.
This is a wonderful dish for Shabbos or Yom Tov lunch. It can be made ahead 
and refrigerated.
