This healthy Asian Chicken Pasta salad is so light and refreshing! Perfect as a cold main-dish salad, for dinner or lunch (or both! What the hey?). Its mild flavors will please the kids, but it’s certainly not lacking flavor for the adults in your life.

Whip this up and package it in individual containers for easy grab lunches for the week. Serve this on the patio on paper plates on a perfect spring day. Make ahead and have dinner on the boat (this is how we ate it the first time!).

However you choose to eat it, make sure you let us know how much you love it!
