Save time and effort on hot days with a wonderfully easy salad. It uses ready-roasted chicken, and the pasta and sugarsnap peas can be cooked ahead. Feta cheese, rocket and sweet juicy grapes – rich in antioxidants – all add to the feast of flavours.
This is a versatile recipe so you can ring the changes, depending on what's available. Well-drained canned tuna chunks, chopped lean ham or turkey breast could be used in place of the roast chicken, juicy, vine-ripened cherry tomatoes rather than grapes and frozen peas or trimmed mange-tout as an alternative to green vegetables. Other good pasta shapes would be fusilli or penne.
Used brie instead of feta, 1 tbsp dried mint instead of 3 fresh. Delicious. - 26 Jul 2012
