- 8 oz Rotini pasta
- 1 cup grape tomatoes, sliced in half
- 1/2 cup yellow bell pepper, diced
- 1/2 cup red/orange pepper, diced
- 1 cup broccoli, blanched
- 1/3 cup red onion, diced
- 1 cup mozzarella pearls
- 1/4 cup kalamata olives, sliced in half
- 1 pound chicken breast
- 1/4 cup Italian dressing
- juice of half a lemon
- salt and pepper to taste
This recipe is really simple and easy to put together. Cook your pasta according to the package directions and drain. For the chicken breast, we just seasoned ours with our favorite seasonings and seared each side for 5-minutes on medium-high heat. Let that rest for about 5-minutes and then dice into bite sized pieces. Put everything into a large mixing bowl and stir to combine.
Just like that, you’re done! We ate ours over a bed of arugula. You can adjust any of the ingredients to your liking. We think next time we’ll switch out the mozzarella and toss in some grated parmesan instead. Shrimp would be a nice substitute for the chicken. Other veggies you could add to this are cucumber, asparagus or zucchini. Let us know what you put in your salad!
