One of my favorite things to do is to prepare a large batch of food that I can have for lunch throughout the week. Sometimes things get so busy that I hardly have time to sit down for lunch, let alone start preparing one right there. So, at the end of each week I like to prepare something ahead, mainly to avoid eating unhealthy dishes when I’m in a hurry.
This chicken pasta salad is one of my all-time favorites! I have served it as a side dish for many entrees, but I love having this alone for lunch. It’s lean and healthy, and the recipe is very versatile! You can adjust the ingredients to your taste, or enjoy new flavors every time you make this. The recipe states this can be made up to 24 hours before serving, but I have noticed if I store the leftovers in individual portions, in air-tight containers, this will easily keep a couple of days and help me plan my weekly meals better!
