Chicken Wild Rice Pasta Salad

A delicious version of the classic Chicken Wild Rice salad with the addition of Creamette pasta
Prep Time 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 15 oz can cooked wild rice drained.
  • 2 stalks of celery diced (about 1 cup)
  • 8 oz Creamette elbow macaroni cooked according to package instructions, drained, cooled.
  • 1 cup grapes halved
  • 1/2 cup almonds chopped
  • 1 lb cooked chicken or turkey diced

For dressing

  • 1 1/2 cups mayo
  • 3/4 cups Greek yogurt plain
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon dried Thyme
  • salt & pepper

Instructions

  • Combine dressing ingredients first, set aside.
  • Combine remaining ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Add the dressing and stir.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste (you'll be adding at least 1 tablespoon of salt--be prepared)
  • Chill for at least 2 hours prior to serving (best if it chills overnight).

Notes

In place of Thyme feel free to use your favorite herb. I sometimes like to add curry powder or hot sauce to this recipe for an added flavor punch.
