I hate cooking hot food in the summer, don’t you?  Unless it is grilling out back.  But I really prefer cold food in the summer.  Especially here in Vegas where it is soooo hot! 

Salads are so yummy.  I have so many good salad recipes.  I thought you might like one of them today.  Let me know how you like it!


Recipe: Fruited Chicken Pasta Salad

Yield: one large bowl


  • 1 box cooked medium shell pasta, rinsed with cold water till cooled
  • 3 or 4 chopped cooked chicken breasts-cooled ( you can boil your chicken, but I like to bake it in the oven at 375 for about 20-30 minutes.  I season it with Lawry’s and pepper before baking)
  • 2 or 3 cans drained mandarin oranges (I left them out this time as I don’t care for them.  I do like to add a fresh orange cut up, but didn’t have one on hand this time)
  • 1 large bunch red grapes, cut in half
  • 1 cans drained sliced water chestnuts, julienned
  • 1 ½ c. sliced celery
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 2 packets buttermilk ranch dressing mix
  • 1 c. mayo (or Miracle Whip, if you prefer)
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • pepper to taste

Directions: Mix the mayo, milk, and ranch mix together.  Mix up the other ingredients in a large bowl and add the dressing, stirring to combine.  Add the mandarin oranges only after everything else is well mixed so that they don’t fall apart. This is a great salad for a shower or just to have in the fridge for lunch. Serve with rolls or croissants.


  1. I always love salad because I was never a good cook. Salad is simply easy to prepared and pass rate is quite high...Yum yum, can't wait to try this!

  2. Stopping by from Tatertots and Jello. This looks great!
