Caprese Chicken Pasta Salad

This recipe is excellent for making in advance for get-togethers or even business lunches. It would be nice to cook the pasta on a Sunday for the next week because it keeps pretty well in the refrigerator. As the salad sits, its flavour even intensifies! you avoid browning, just make sure you add the avocado the day before.

My go-to summertime pasta salad is this simple Caprese Chicken Pasta Salad with honey balsamic dressing. It comes together quickly and requires very little work, hardly no cooking at all. Marinated mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, creamy avocado, spaghetti, and grilled balsamic herb chicken are all combined. It tastes amazing and is vibrant. Save the leftovers for lunch and savour this for dinner. Or present it at your upcoming summer gathering. It’s always positive.
