Chicken Bow-Tie Pasta Salad Recipe:

This is another Glenwood Cooperative classic recipe from Barbara’s college days. Her house of over 30 girls ate this bow tie pasta salad with chicken for lunch many days.

Why do you ask? Not only is it simple to prepare, but it is also easy to multiply to larger servings and because it is so tasty.

The great thing about pasta salads like this one is that they just get better once they sit in the fridge and soak up all the dressing.

This is one of those dishes that we make up on Sunday and then take it to work for lunch the rest of the week. We may switch it up and take this Luscious Lettuce Salad in a Jar a couple of days and the Chicken Bow-Tie Pasta Salad the other days.
