Chicken Pasta Salad with Grapes and Poppy Seed Dressing
To Othervoice: I don't see where anyone alese addressed your question about the amount of sodium in this recipe. Without seeing the Pasta Salas mix box I'd guesss some of it is coming from there, but I'd say a good portion is coming from the bottled poppy seed dressing. You may want to try and make your own dressing to lower the sodium count. I found a recipe on another site ( by someone named Paula) which looks pretty easy & only has a tsp. of salt in it.
Poppy Seed Dressing
Recipe Yield 1.75 cups (14 servings)
1/3 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup white vinegar, 1 teaspoon salt,
1 teaspoon ground dry mustard, 1 teaspoon grated onion, 1 cup vegetable oil, 1 tablespoon poppy seeds.
In a blender or food processor, combine sugar, vinegar, salt, mustard and onion and process for 20 seconds. With blender or food processor on high, gradually add oil in a slow, steady stream. Stir in poppy seeds.

Otherwise if you use grilled chicken that you make yourself, this sounds like a good recipe that I'd like to try & would be fairly healthy for you. I hope this helps.
