Anytime I am invited to a dinner party, I look at it as a great opportunity. It’s a great opportunity to try a recipe that I want to try, but know that MY family would never eat. Lat night my friend had a party for her husband who just graduated with his masters degree. So I took this opportunity to make a recipe for Fiesta Chicken Pasta Salad (minus the chicken) that I saw on The Sister’s Cafe from Erin.
I had several compliments at the party on the salad, so it was definitely a success. I was quick and easy to. It would be a great main dish salad with the chicken, but it turned out to be a great side dish by leaving the chicken out. I was different from your run of the mill Italian pasta salad. I loved the southwestern twist. You could even make it with just regular rontini and I think it would be just as good.
