Directions

  1. Preheat a grill pan over medium-high heat; lightly oil the grill.
  2. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain well.
  3. While pasta is cooking, grill the chicken breast halves until the meat is no longer pink in the middle and the juices run clear, 5 to 8 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a chicken breast should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Allow to rest for about 5 minutes, then slice into bite-size pieces; keep warm.
  4. In a large salad bowl, lightly toss together the grilled chicken, hot cooked linguine, romaine, green pepper, red onion, and cucumber.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together safflower oil, cider vinegar, sugar, poppy seeds, dry mustard powder, and green onions until smooth and evenly blended. Pour the dressing over the salad to serve.

I made this recipe with a bit of a twist using bowtie pasta and bottled poppy seed dressing. I also deleted the cucumbers because I do not care for them in salads. The onion and green pepper provided just enough flavor with the creamy poppy seed dressing. It was fantastic and my husband loved it! It is a great summer meal.

Very good mix of flavors. I will half the sugar next time, just a bit sweet for my taste. This salad was a huge hit at the last BBQ.

This was the most bland, flavorless dish I have ever made.
