Asparagus Salad Recipe @pinch

Light and refreshing, this is a wonderful summer pasta salad. We love the texture of crisp asparagus and celery slices with the tender bow-tie pasta. Italian dressing adds a punch of zesty flavor. We added grilled chicken and it makes this pasta salad hearty enough for a light summer dinner. This is a good summer recipe. It's one of my own, and everyone in the family and friends love this recipe. You can add grilled chicken from the store if you want this as a main dish.
