Spring and Summer Tabouli Chicken Pasta Salad

Tabouli Chicken Pasta Salad

I am not known for my cooking but I do have some experience I was a sub cook for a hospital feeding patients and staff every day. I also currently own a deli with my mom which has been re opened now for nearly 2 years from a family business 10 years ago. 

I sometimes like to experiment with different foods just to see how they would taste together. This I had to share. 

You will need the following to start. 

Pasta of your choice~ cooked and cooled
Grapes ~ any kind will do but part of the taste is the red grapes
Radish~ for a crispy freshness
Green apple~ I use a full green apple to this mix I peel all the skin off and dice into very small pieces 
Celery ~ to compliment the radish crunch
Chicken ~ A few chicken tenders cooked on how you prefer could be baked or crispy ~~ If your not a meat eater just simply leave this out. 
Blue cheese~ your choice of blue cheese crumbles 
Blue cheese dressing ~ not to much just enough to wet the pasta down and make stick together. The crumbles and all the flavor will be powering enough
Tabouli ~ I found this Tabouli at Costco but can be homemade if you desire to get that fancy

Cut up all your ingredients into a large mixing bowl.

After your pasta is cooked and cooled down start to add the ingredients together.

Once your diced goodies are in mixed with the pasta add dressing and mix good. 

NOT to much dressing it will overload your pasta and you will not be able to taste the fresh crisp fruits and veggies. 

I add the Tabouli at the end If your serving a good number of people the strong lemon taste may not be everyone's cup of tea. So its a great side dish. 

This is a great recipe for serving at pot lucks, family events and simply just to have for a snack at the house. 

I hope you enjoy .. it's simply delicious!
