This pasta salad will vanish before your eyes! With an appetizing combination of basil, peas, chicken, and Parmesan cheese, your guests won’t be able to get enough.

  • Serves: 4
  • Cook Time:
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions
  2. About one minute before it finishes cooking add the pea pods. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  3. In a large bowl, add pasta, pea pods, chicken, celery, parsley, Saskatoon berries, red pepper, red onion, and basil.
  4. Whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper to make the dressing.
  5. Toss salad with dressing, cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight to blend flavours.
  6. Before serving, toss with the parmesan cheese.

Saskatoon bushes grow wild on many prairie farms and the berry is similar in flavour to a blueberry. If Saskatoons aren’t available, use blueberries.

TIP: A quick way to get cooked chicken is to buy a rotisserie chicken from your local store. A 3 lb / 1.5 kg rotisserie chicken provides 2 ½ - 3 cups of boneless, skinless meat.
