Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Today it’s all about how to make a quick and easy sesame chicken salad. It has spinach, bowtie pasta, chicken, green onions, bell peppers, sesame seeds and sugared almonds! The homemade dressing is light and healthy. The salad is good to eat the next day too, even with the dressing on it! BONUS!

One thing about this spinach bowtie pasta salad is the fact you can choose the amount of chicken you would like in it, or zero chicken if that is your thing!  You can add more spinach or less, it just depends on the flavor and texture you want. You can add more bell peppers if you want, it still tastes great. More pasta or less pasta.This is a fabulous salad for family reunions because it makes a HUGE bowl of salad. Love it! Of course, you can cut the recipe way down as well. We had eleven people for dinner with homemade bread and we had a small portion leftover.
