Expert Tips

This is a perfect take-along salad for a picnic or barbecue. Just keep the crushed noodles in a separate container until ready to serve. Stir gently into salad.

If you want to serve this as a meatless side dish, simply omit the chicken breast. You will have about eight 3/4-cup servings.
