Directions

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. Place breasts into a glass baking dish and marinate in steak sauce for 15 to 60 minutes.
  2. Grill chicken until no longer pink and the juices run clear. Remove from grill, and chop into bite-size pieces.
  3. To a large pot of boiling water, add bouillon cubes and pasta. Cook pasta until al dente. Drain, and rinse under cold water.
  4. In a large bowl, combine chicken, pasta, onion, avocados and tomatoes. Mix in salad dressing, cover, and refrigerate until chilled.

To call this salad "the best" is a little ambitious, but it is good, and definitely worth making. I substituted only one of the avocados for a can of artichoke hearts to be a little more health conscious, and used Kraft's Light Done Right Ranch. hint: almost any light dressing loses a lot of its inherent ickiness if tossed in salad and not plopped on top.

This salad was a surprise hit with my guys, I used grape tomatoes instead of cherry and only 1/4 of a Vidalia onion since a whole one seemed way too much, my husband recommended I also add in a chopped cucumber in addition to the avacado since it is so mild in flavor. I am not a fan of ranch anything, but this was really good, I would recommend it to anyone looking for something different from the usual mayo covered salads you find at cookouts.

Boy was this good. I regret not having an avocado. But even without it the pasta salad was fantastic. I added some parmesan cheese and that gave it a nice flavor as well. I highly recommend this recipe.
