Chicken Pasta Salad
Fantastic and Very Easy!


Chicken Pasta Salad

This Chicken Pasta Salad recipe combines chicken with...what else?...pasta!!! Give it a try!

It also has Edam in it which is a favorite of mine. Plus it has lots of other tasty surprises like chives and parsley.

The dressing for this salad is a wonderful blend of tomato, mustard and lemon!

Like the combination? Great! This is something you'll enjoy. (My Chef sure does!)


If you like to try a different combination, either have a look to the photos or read ahead to my Chef's tips to find out some extra ingredients you can use or change. I'm sure this will be a favorite for you and yours for a long time!

Ingredients (Serves 2-3 pastas):

100g pasta
200g of cooked chicken breasts or legs
150g Edam cheese, grated
1 medium onion
Green lettuce


3 tablespoons of tomato purée
2 teaspoons of mustard
A few tablespoons of oil
Juice from one lemon
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions for Chicken Pasta Salad:

Cook your pasta according to the directions on the package. When done, drain the pasta. Rinse and cool it down with cold water. Place into a large salad bowl.

Draining the Cooked Pasta

Cut the chicken into strips and add it to the pasta.

One of The Main Ingredients!

Next, we’ll add the grated Edam cheese.

Grating the Edam

Peel and rinse the onion.

Unpeeled Uncut Onion

Cut the onion into cubes. Keep this outside of the salad bowl for now as we’ll add this later.

Chop the chives into tiny bits. You can add them now or set them for later aside as well with the onions.

Adding the Greens Now!

Wash the lettuce thoroughly and dry gently with paper towels. Chop the lettuce into bite size pieces and add to the salad bowl.

Adding the Chopped Lettuce

Combine the dressing ingredients in a bottle. Close the bottle tightly and shake well to combine the ingredients well. Then pour the dressing over the chicken-pasta-cheese combo in our salad bowl.

One of Two Teaspoons of Mustard
Tomato Puree and Mustard
Squeezing the Lemon for Juice
Pouring the Dressing

Now add the onions that we’ve been saving all this time (and chives if you didn't add them already)!

Adding Chopped Onions

Now mix everything together well!

My Chef's Tips:

Serve with extra lettuce and sprinkle with some parsley.

For added variety, you can also add chopped red pepper, or a tomato cut into cubes, if you like.

Now! You may notice from our pictures, I made some substitutions and additions. I decided to the green part of some green onions. I also added some shredded carrots - just to add a little color for the presentation!

Shredded Carrot Substitution

Whatever combination of substitutions you try, I hope you enjoy this chicken pasta dish!
