How To Make Creamy Chicken Pasta Salad
This chicken pasta salad is a filling dish that’s lusciously coated with creamy buttermilk-yogurt dressing, and tossed with crisp veggies and tender pasta.
Whisk the yogurt, buttermilk, mayonnaise, parsley, garlic, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper together. Taste and add more salt, pepper, or garlic, if desired.
Stick the dressing in the refrigerator.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain, then rinse with cold water to cool. Pour into a large bowl.
Add the chicken, tomatoes, broccoli, and pepper. Pour ¾ cup of the dressing over the pasta salad and gently toss to combine.
Add a little more dressing, if desired. Add the feta cheese and bacon, then stir up the pasta salad again. Season with additional salt and pepper, as desired.
Chill for at least 2 hours and up to 1 day.
Serve and enjoy!
