Helpful Tips to Make Perfect Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad

You could side dish this pasta on any occasion and get compliments from your guests. Some amazing tips to make crunchy, creamy pasta are:

  • Cook the pasta al dente because overcooking the pasta can result in a mushy texture, ruining the salad’s overall texture.
  • Fresh vegetables add color and flavor to the salad. You can use any vegetables, but popular choices include celery, carrots, bell peppers, olives and onions.
  • To shred the chicken for the recipe, use a stand mixer or a hand-held mixer . Both work well for smaller amounts of chicken. You can either use a food processor or any blender but be careful not to over-process the chicken.
  • Always taste before serving and adjust the seasoning of salad as necessary. You may need more salt or pepper to achieve the desired flavour.
