Serves: 7 cups
Ingredients
  • 3 Cups spiral pasta (Any small pasta will be great)
  • 8 oz chicken, cooked, cut into bite size pieces

  • 1 cup grapes
  • Dressing:
  • ¼ cup orange juice (I used Tropic 50)
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tsp. distilled vinegar
  • ½ tsp. stevia or granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. Poppy seeds
Instructions
  1. Cook pasta according to manufactures direction. When pasta is done, drain the water and add to a large bowl to cool.
  2. Once cooled, add chicken, strawberries, grapes and scallions. Lightly mix together; set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, add all of the dressing ingredients; whisk until combined. Pour dressing into pasta salad and mix until combined. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Let the flavors marinate for one hour before serving. If you do not plan to serve this right away, add the fruit when ready to serve.
Notes
Note: I meant to add scallions to the pasta, so please feel free to add about a ¼ cup. I totally forgot!
