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

  • 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


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