If your summer days are filled with activities, add this main-dish pasta salad to your menu plan. Make it early in the day or the night before and chill it until serving time. The honey-mustard dressing is fantastic with the chicken, pasta, and veggies.




  • Cook pasta following package directions. Drain.

  • While pasta is cooking, heat grill pan or broiler. Sprinkle chicken with the lemon juice and grill or broil for about 2 minutes per side or until internal temperature reads 160°F on an instant-read thermometer. Set aside and let cool.

  • When cool, cut chicken into bite-size pieces and mix with cooled pasta in a large bowl. Add diced peppers, onion, scallions and dill.

  • In a medium-size bowl, whisk mayonnaise, vinegar, honey, mustard, sugar, onion powder, parsley flakes, salt and black pepper. Gradually whisk in the oil.

  • Pour mayonnaise mixture over the pasta and chicken and toss. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
