Lynn demonstrates a delicious Cilantro-Lime Pasta Salad. This would be perfect for lunch or even a light dinner. Adapted from Better Homes and Garden. 5 servings.
Sprinkle the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Roast the chicken in the oven at 350° until done. Cut chicken into bite size pieces, when cool enough to handle.
Cook pasta according to package directions, drain.
For the dressing, in a blender, combine lime juice, cilantro oil, sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, garlic powder, cumin, and cayenne pepper. Cover and blend about 30 seconds or until well mixed. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine pasta, chicken, tomatoes, red onion, mango, avocado, sweet peppers, and jalapeno pepper. Pour dressing over pasta mixture; toss gently to coat. Serve with lime wedges if desired.
