Here’s another quick and easy salad. Five ingredients and 20 minutes are all you need to put together this super main-dish salad! Great for lunch or dinner.

Dijon Chicken and Pasta Salad

Prep Time:5 min
Start to Finish:15 min
Makes:4 servings

1 package Betty Crocker® Suddenly Salad® classic pasta salad mix
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons cold water
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 cup cubed cooked chicken

1. Fill 3-quart saucepan 2/3 full of water. Heat to boiling. Add contents of Pasta-Vegetable pouch to boiling water. Gently boil about 12 minutes or until pasta is tender; drain. Rinse with cold water until chilled; drain.
2. Stir together Seasoning mix, oil, water and mustard in large bowl. Stir in pasta-vegetable mixture. Stir in chicken. Toss with Parmesan Topping. Refrigerate any remaining salad.

Substitution
One cup of cooked frozen (thawed) imitation crabmeat chunks instead of chicken turns this into a seafood delight.

Variation
If you’re an artichoke lover, stir in a 14-ounce can of artichoke hearts, drained and cut into fourths, with the chicken.
