About This Recipe

The past few days have been uncomfortably hot and humid in my neck of the woods. It’s just weird to see the leaves changing colors while you’re sweating. I really want to have cool fall breezes and be able to enjoy this time of the year.

But in the meantime, main dish salads are on the menu. This recipe for Chicken Club Pasta Salad is one of my favorites. It takes all of the flavors of a club sandwich and turns them into a cool salad.

Enjoy this easy salad. And hopefully the weather will return to normal and I can start using my oven again!
