WOW Me Wednesday! UPDATE ADD CHICKEN!

Standard

Yep, it’s been awhile since I posted a “Wow Me Wednesday” recipe.  This will be worth the wait! LOL

Broccoli and Grape Pasta Salad (Originally from Southern Living) 6-8 servings

Ingredients – ADD a can of CHICKEN!!!!! YUM
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans (I just added pine nuts when ready to serve.)
  • 8 ounces farfalle pasta
  • 3 cups finely chopped broccoli florets
  • 1 cup mayo (Best Foods is my choice)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups seedless red grapes, cut in half
  • 6 cooked bacon slices, crumbled
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place pecans on baking sheet and toast in oven for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring half way through.
  2. Prepare pasta according to package directions, cooking to al dente. Drain pasta and place in a large bowl.
  3. In a medium bowl combine mayonnaise, sugar, red wine vinegar, red onion, and salt. Whisk well.
  4. Add broccoli and grapes to the large bowl with pasta. Gradually add mayonnaise mixture (I added about 75% of the mayo mixture, then added the rest after it was chilled – it really soaks it up).
  5. Cover and chill for 3 hours. Stir bacon and pecans into salad just before serving.
