    I make this salad all summer. The amounts here are estimates, as I rarely measure when I make this salad, so feel free to add a bit more or less of whatever you please.

    I made this for dinner and it turned out really well. It was filling enough for a main course and we used the leftovers as a side salad the next day when we barbequed hamburgers. I added diced tomatoes and 1/2 cup of sun dried tomatoes to it as well and it was delicious.  -  08 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Great Pasta salad. Used leftover BBQ chicken and added tomatoes, green pepper, artichoke hearts and feta cheese to the other ingredients.  -  22 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    I *love* this recipe. I tried it out and it was so tasty. I could eat this over and over again. I don't always use olives, and tomatoes seems like it might be overkill, but when cooking the chicken, I use sesame seed oil, rice wine vinegar, and some soy sauce, as well as a bit of powdered ginger for a boost of flavor for the chicken all by itself. This is an excellent recipe.  -  13 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
