♥ Grilled Chicken with Rotini Pasta Salad






























I felt like pasta salad today for lunch. So I put together some ingredients I had on hand and came up with a good one!  Tender strips of moist chicken on a bed of wonderful pasta drizzled with a tasty buttermilk ranch dressing.  This was a great combo.

Whisk the mayonnaise, buttermilk, 1/4 cup chives, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste. Toss in the pasta and mix well. Toss in the grilled chicken, carrots and tomatoes and season with salt to taste. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon chives and cover and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature before serving.
