Looking for a quick meal or side dish? This Quick Teriyaki Chicken Bowtie Salad is amazingly simple…and simply amazing.
Quick Teriyaki Chicken Bowtie Pasta Salad
You probably already know that I’m a HUGE fan of pasta salads. Remember my go-to Easy Spinach Tortellini Salad ? That one is still an all-time favorite, but when I was introduced to this Bowtie Pasta, well, it’s become a new favorite as well!
I find any excuse I can to make this. We’ve served it at a big dinner party, a small luncheon, and we even made it on our recent vacation to the beach.
It’s flavorful and filling, yet still light. A perfect go-to recipe for summer! I could seriously eat this every night. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
What You Need:
I usually use the following ingredients:
- 16 oz. bowtie pasta
- mandarin oranges
- honey roasted peanuts or cashews
- green onions
- teriyaki marinated chicken
However, there have been plenty of times when I haven’t had green onions or honey roasted nuts. And sometimes, I’m not feeling meat, so I leave the chicken out. Of course, the salad is amazing when you include everything, but if you are missing a few ingredients, don’t let that stop you from making this amazing salad.
Seriously, look at the goodness! Who wants to come to dinner?
