Updated August 26, 2010

Ingredients

  • 2 (8.1-oz.) pkg. roasted garlic Parmesan pasta salad mix
  • 1 (8-oz.) container sour cream
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 2 cups diced celery (about 4 medium stalks)
  • 1 (8.5-oz.) jar marinated sun-dried tomatoes, patted dry, diced (1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 2 medium red bell peppers, diced

Steps

  • 1
    Bring large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add pasta from salad mix to water. Reduce heat to medium. Boil gently 12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain; rinse with cold water and shake to remove excess moisture.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in very large bowl, combine seasoning mix from salad mix, sour cream, mayonnaise, milk and salt; blend well. Add chicken, celery, sun-dried tomatoes, onions and bell pepper.
  • 3
    Add pasta to chicken mixture; stir to combine. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour to chill, or until serving time.
  • 4
    Just before serving, sprinkle contents of topping packets from salad mix over salad.

  • Sun-dried tomatoes have had most of their moisture dried away, leaving intense tomato flavor. They are sold dry in bulk or in jars in oil marinade. Use marinated sun-dried tomatoes to give this salad lots of tomato taste.
  • To reduce the fat in each serving of this salad by about 8 grams, use low-fat sour cream and low-fat mayonnaise.
  • For more Mediterranean flavor, add a jar of marinated artichoke hearts to this salad; drain and coarsely chop the artichoke hearts before you add them.
