Grilled Chicken, Farfalle and Tomato Salad Recipe


Looking for a new summer salad to serve at backyard gatherings, barbecues, or just at home with grilled meat, chicken, or fish? This yummy salad uses up fresh tomatoes and basil from the garden, as well as grilled chicken. If you happen to be grilling a day or two before you want to serve this salad, grill extra so it will be on hand. Grilled Chicken, Farfalle, and Tomato Salad will be a hit with family and guests; it doesn’t have a heavy dressing, and is perfect for summer.
””
The acid in the tomatoes keep the avocados green, so the salad can be made the day before serving if it’s more convenient. Actually, it’s best when it is chilled for an hour or two before serving. The creamy avocados go well with the chicken and pasta and make for a very satisfying taste of summer. This salad can also be served as a main dish with a slice or two of freshly baked crusty bread on the side. It is colorful and is a good choice to take to a pot luck or backyard barbecue.
