BBQ Chicken Pasta Salad

Ever wonder what to do with leftover BBQ chicken and veggies? Thanks to my grillmaster husband, we've had lots of leftover grilled goodies recently.

My answer: a quick, easy pasta salad that's brimming with flavor.
  • grilled chicken
  • grilled red and yellow bell peppers
  • fresh spinach
  • minced garlic
  • olive oil
  • fresh oregano
  • sea salt
  • lead-free balsamic vinegar
While the pasta is cooking, I wilt the spinach with garlic in a splash of olive oil. In a large mixing bowl I toss the wilted spinach with the chicken and peppers, sliced into bite-sized pieces; when the pasta is cooked, I add that to the bowl. Season with salt, oregano, balsamic vinegar, and finish off with a splash of olive oil...just enough to make it all shine!

I love that this is on the table in the time it takes to cook the pasta plus five minutes. Perfect for those summer evenings when you've been on the beach till too late.
