I am all about salad in the warmer weather! I got so excited about salad season this year that I started a Summer Salad Series on the blog! You can read the first post here. The second post in the series features Pasta Salads including Easy Fixes for boxed salad mixes.
Because they are so easy to prepare, I tend to purchase a few boxes of Suddenly Salad each summer. While I am not complaining about the Suddenly Salad as prepared, they can be enhanced many different ways to personalize to your family’s taste. The recipe I am sharing is one we recently enjoyed.
Parmesan Chicken & Veggie Suddenly Salad
1 box of Suddenly Salad
2 or 3 boneless skinless chicken breast or tenderloins
3 or 4 pieces of cooked bacon, crumbled
1/4 cup chopped red, orange & yellow sweet peppers
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1 tsp. lemon pepper
1/2 cup Italian dressing
Spray skillet with non-stick spray. Cook chicken in prepared skillet and sprinkle with lemon pepper while cooking. Cut cooked chicken into bite size pieces. Cook and drain the bacon, crumble or chop in food chopper.
Prepare Pasta according to package directions. Do not use the seasoning package.
Stir all ingredients together after prepared. Pour the Italian dressing over all, stir well. Refrigerate for several hours.
Serve on a bed of lettuce, sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
