Summer is coming and I am all about those pasta salad dishes! They are great as a side dish when grilling up some burgers, and perfect to take to any summer get-togethers. I whipped up this simple chicken and broccoli pasta salad on a whim one day with what I had available in my fridge and pantry and it came together quite nicely, I didn’t have intentions of adding it to the blog but it was so delicious I couldn’t keep it to myself haha.. Makes 8, 1 cup servings, 4SP on both blue/green, 2SP on purple.

  1. Looks so good! How long would you say it keeps? Or would you suggest only adding dressing before serving? Thanks!

      Adding the dressing before serving would be a good idea if you plan to prep it earlier, it should be good in the fridge for 3-4 days

      Hi Natalie, it should last 3-4 days in the fridge in an air-tight container, you could just add the dressing as you go if you want.

  2. So yummy! I had cherry tomatoes on hand so I sliced those and added instead of broccoli. Amazing! I had it warm and loved it!
