  1. I halved the recipe still made a ton. I used grape tomatoes spring onions added celery and fetti noodles. left out the Italian seasoning and used much less Italian seasoning dressing also subbed out cut-up jumbo shrimp for the fowl. ramen noodles or any type of crunchy noodle would be great here. this marinaded @4 - Read more ...
  2. Awesome! My aunt used to make this when I was a kid & your recipe was spot on. Thank you!!!:)
  3. Not tried yet but looks mighty good. I might use other pasta instead of spaghetti perhaps corkscrew type or farfale or even in a pinch ziti or elbows. Somehow in my mind it might be easier for little people to handle.
  4. I loved this salad! It was very flavorful and I loved the combination of veggies. My family is not crazy about italian dressing so I only used only about a 1/2 cup instead of the whole bottle and used olive oil for the rest. It was still very tasty. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
  5. This is one of my favorite summer salads. To vary it up sometimes I will substitute pepperoni in place of the chicken and use half prepared ranch dressing for half of the italian dressing. This is even better the next day--if you have any leftover that is.
