Rated 4 out of 5 by from All of us loved this salad compared to the other "traditional" salads. All of us loved this salad compared to the other "traditional" salads. I did alter the recipe a bit: I used fresh cut-up boneless, skinless chicken breasts- I cooked them, added chicken seasoning, salt and some black and red pepper. I also added some cooked, steamed broccoli and of course, Ranch. I will be making this again- that's for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very fast and easy. Very fast and easy. I make this all the time. Using pre-chopped or canned veggies and cooking pasta in the microwave, this can go together in under 20 min. I usually substitute other type of veg (like snow peas, carrots, califlower, peas, lima beans, etc.) since I don't like the bell peppers and onions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Easy! Used gluten free pasta (a full box) and used Kraft Ranch with Bacon (smoky and creamy) because the store didn't carry the Three Cheese Ranch Dressing, but it turned out amazing! Everyone went back for seconds!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My husband and I did not really care for this salad. My husband and I did not really care for this salad. There was just something about it that we did not like. One suggestion would be to add more chicken than the recipe calls for. We thought it was just ok.
