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)

Steps

  • 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.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If the strawberries are large, cut into quarters instead of halves.
  • tip 2
    The dressing can be made up to 1 day ahead; cover and refrigerate. Dress salad just before serving.
  • tip 3
    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.
