We love to make this chilled chicken salad brimming with veggies. Make it meatless by omitting the chicken and tossing in more edamame. —Cindy Heinbaugh, Aurora, Colorado

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) whole wheat spaghetti
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1 cup reduced-fat sesame ginger salad dressing
  • 3 cups cubed cooked chicken breast
  • 1 English cucumber, chopped
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 1 small sweet yellow pepper, chopped
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 3 green onions, sliced

Directions

Cook spaghetti according to package directions, adding edamame during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Rinse in cold water and drain well. Meanwhile, stir ginger into salad dressing.
In a large bowl, combine spaghetti, chicken, cucumber, peppers and red onion. Add dressing; toss to coat. Sprinkle with green onions. Yield: 8 servings.
Health Tip: Make this meatless by omitting the chicken and tossing in more edamame, a legume that is higher in protein than most.

"This salad gets rave reviews at potlucks and picnics. I omit the chicken so that our vegetarian friends can enjoy it, too."
