Chicken pasta salad

This is my favorite salad this time of year.

Gary isn't a big fan, so I usually make a batch and
eat it for lunch for two or three days. And that is
fine with me because...

I LOVE it!
It is so fresh and flavorful.

I shred leftover chicken breast.

If I grill a few breasts for a different recipe
I will grill an extra breast to toss into this salad.

I boil whole wheat pasta.

To it I add chopped onion, celery and a chopped hard boiled egg.

I mix in a bit of mayo [i use the mayo w/olive oil]

I don't really have specific measurements for any of this...I just eyeball it.

Then I add the most important thing...salt. I like to add more salt than normal to this salad. And of course pepper.

Then I let it sit in the 'fridge for hours.

It is perfect after coming in from the backyard on a warm spring day.
And it is pretty low fat!
