Chicken Pasta Salad Recipe @pinch

Serve this well-balanced chicken pasta salad as a main dish or side dish during the summer. It has a nice mixture of small pasta shells, crunchy veggies, and hearty chopped chicken. The homemade creamy vinaigrette adds a sweet and zesty flavor to the pasta salad. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon when serving for a nice touch of smoky flavor. Bacon adds even more flavor to this recipe I came up with to use up the veggies we had on hand. Serving it crumbled in a bowl alongside the salad gives people a chance to top their individual salad to taste.
