6 servings (serving size: 1 2/3 cups)

Serve this soon after you dress the salad so the pasta stays moist.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare salad, cook pasta in boiling water 11 minutes or until al dente. Add green beans during final 5 minutes of cooking. Drain and rinse pasta mixture under cold water. Place pasta mixture, chicken, celery, bell pepper, and onion in a large bowl; toss gently to combine.

Step 2

To prepare dressing, combine 2 tablespoons water and remaining ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle over pasta mixture, tossing gently to coat.

Great light, savory salad full of veggies and healthy stuff. I probably would double the dressing to allow people to add a little more to taste (I love dressing) next time.

This salad was great. I made the dressing one and a half times what some of the reviewers said and it was perfect. I will make this again.

I thought this was very flavorful and definitely easy to make. I also increased the dressing by half and it seemed to be the perfect amount.

This was a little bland, I added some extra pesto and some of my family added a sprinkle of feta cheese on top of their serving for a little more flavor. Would be good for a picinic or potluck with or without the chicken.
