Pomegranate Pasta Salad

10:00 AM

What do you do with all of that extra Pomegranate Salad Dressing from this post?  I have an excellent idea. 
One of my favorite easy dishes to make is pasta salad.  I don’t like the creamy kind that you find in the grocery store.  I like the ones with a vinaigrette.  Here’s a chance to use your extras if you haven’t already finished it off.  This is also a great finger food for little ones and you can add whatever type of protein you wish.  We have a shellfish allergy in our house, which leaves me with chicken most of the time.  It’s just easier anyway.
What You Will Need:

½ lb orzo, cooked and cooled
1 lb baked or grilled chicken, cut up into 1-inch pieces
1 pint of grape or cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1 C of fresh basil
½ C kalamata olives, pitted and cut in half
¾ C of fresh mozzarella mini-balls
1)      Mix all ingredients and chill.

2)      Serve with bread.
