Zesty Feta and Shrimp Summer Pasta Salad
2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 (16 ounce) package uncooked farfalle (bow tie) pasta
1/2 pound frozen cooked cocktail shrimp
1 (2.25 ounce) can diced black olives, drained
1 pint cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup baby carrots, chopped
1 cucumber, diced
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 (6 ounce) package feta cheese, crumbled
salt-free seasoning blend to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Place the chicken in a baking dish, and roast 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until juices run clear. Remove from heat, cool, and cut into bite-size pieces.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add farfalle pasta, cook 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain. Cool to room temperature.
In a large bowl, mix the chicken, pasta, shrimp, olives, tomatoes, carrots, and cucumber. Toss with balsamic vinegar and feta cheese, and season with salt-free seasoning blend.
