Confetti Chicken Salad
1 rotisserie chicken (cooked, and meat picked off the bone)
½ cup mayonnaise
½ cup sour cream
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 red, green, yellow and orange pepper, diced small
½ medium red onion, diced small
1 pound pasta (bow-tie), cooked al dente
Place chicken pieces in a large mixing bowl and add peppers and onion. Cook pasta as directed on package and drain. Pour drained warm pasta over the chicken mixture and set aside. In small mixing bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, Italian seasoning and olive oil. Pour over pasta mixture and toss to coat. Refrigerate at least 4 hours. Salad can be served alone or on a bed of crisp greens.
Cook time: 15 minutes
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Notes from Paula’s Test Kitchen: We also tested this salad recipe by omitting the mayonnaise and sour cream and replacing it with ¼ cup apple cider vinegar. It was a fantastic and lighter option. Both versions are a wonderful spring and summer meal.
Wonderful ideas!!! Thank you so much for sharing this information about such a great occasion! Cindy, your ideas always helpful and creative.

Susan Lott is a great party planner! She has tons of great ideas that she needs to share with the online world. I have been begging her to start a Facebook page or Etsy account. The graduation gift that she made me was hand drawn with my name and different definitions for each letter. She framed it and I cherish it.....I also would have paid about $50 for it in a store. Thanks for sharing her idea but this idea is nothing compared to some of her other quick and money saving tips! You should hire her for your creative team!
Love you Susu!
