About this recipe: This pasta salad reminds me of summer and it feeds a crowd! I regularly use up leftovers (chicken and veggies) in this salad.


Serves: 24 

  • 450 g farfalle (bow tie) pasta
  • 100g broccoli florets
  • 225g fresh asparagus spears, trimmed and chopped
  • 225g diced cooked chicken
  • 1 tin kidney beans, drained
  • 100g black olives, drained and sliced
  • 1 medium fresh green pepper, seeded and diced
  • 150g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 120g crumbled feta cheese
  • 225ml salad dressing or vinaigrette, or as needed
  • salt and pepper to taste

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta, and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Add broccoli florets and asparagus to the boiling water during the last 5 minutes. Drain, and run under cold water to cool.
  2. In a large serving bowl, stir together the diced chicken, kidney beans, black olives, green pepper, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese and Italian dressing. Stir in the pasta, broccoli and asparagus. Season with salt and pepper to taste. I like it pretty heavy on the pepper. This salad is best if chilled for a couple of hours before serving.
