Ingredients

3
cups uncooked bow-tie (farfalle) pasta (8 oz)
2/3
cup buttermilk
1/3
cup light mayonnaise
1
large clove garlic, finely chopped
2
tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/2
teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4
teaspoon salt
1
deli rotisserie chicken (2 lb), shredded (about 4 cups)
2
cups lightly packed fresh baby spinach leaves (about 3 oz)
1
lb fresh strawberries, cut in half
3/4
cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese (3 oz)

Directions

  • 1 Cook and drain pasta as directed on package. Rinse with cold water to cool; drain.
  • 2 In small bowl, slowly beat buttermilk, mayonnaise, garlic, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and salt with whisk until smooth.
  • 3 In large bowl, toss pasta and chicken. Just before serving, pour buttermilk dressing over pasta mixture and toss to combine. Add spinach and toss gently. Spoon salad onto serving platter; top with strawberries and cheese.

Expert Tips

If the strawberries are large, cut into quarters instead of halves.

The dressing can be made up to 1 day ahead; cover and refrigerate. Dress salad just before serving.

Recipe Variation Feta Turkey Salad: Substitute 4 cups cubed or shredded cooked turkey for the chicken and 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese for the Gorgonzola. Add 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion, if desired.
