More About This Recipe

  • Pasta salad is always a favorite at family get-togethers, but it’s time to say goodbye to the ordinary and take it to the next level! We’ve given this Curry Chicken Pasta Salad an international update with Thai flavors of curry, pineapple, and coconut. This dish comes together in a snap, but you can save even more time by using leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken. Not only is it a huge crowd-pleaser, this easy salad is a great make-ahead dish for your next party. In fact, it’s even better the next day when the flavors have time to sit and combine. My favorite thing about this salad is that it’s SO versatile! You can: Serve it as-is and watch it disappear Turn it into appetizers by placing spoonfuls in premade baked phyllo cups (found in the freezer aisle of your local grocery store) Grab some fresh croissants and serve it as flavorful sandwiches Spoon heaping tablespoons onto large romaine lettuce leaves and roll into lettuce wraps I love it when you find a dish that can be served so many ways and is always a huge crowd pleaser! Even my kids who are not big curry fans gobbled up this dish. It’s a perfect blend of sweet, soft, crunchy, and hint of spice. Give it a try and I think it will be a favorite at your house, too!
