Saturday night I attended a family member's birthday party and had a blast. Being a foodie, I really enjoyed all of the delectable viddles served at the wonderful soiree. One of the most interesting dishes that I had for the first time at this event was a pasta salad with crispy steamed broccoli, chicken breast, beef sausage, and shrimp in it. It was of course scrumptious delumptious. It reminded me of jambalaya. I was so busy fellowshipping with my family that I didn't get a chance to snap a photo of this dish, so I stole this photo and the next one from Google. Anywho, l decided to go home and develop a recipe for it or at least my interpretation of it so here goes...... INGREDIENTS
2 cups cooked chopped chicken breast
16oz or 1lb Mueller's® ziti pasta
2 cups Dukes® mayonnaise.
2 cups cooked Hillshire Farm® kielbasa sausage
2 cups of cooked shrimp
1 cup chopped bell pepper (preferably orange in color)
1 cup chopped celery.
1 cup chopped red onion.
1 cup chopped raw broccoli
2 cups cherry, grape halved or diced plum tomatoes (preferably heirloom or artisan)
3 tablespoons ZATARAIN'S® Creole Mustard. (can substitute Lea and Perrin's® Worcestershire Sauce)
1 tablespoon of Old Bay® Seasoning
1 tablespoon of Lowry's® Seasoning Salt
1 tablespoon of garlic powder
1 tablespoon dried parsley of 1/2 cup fresh parsley
Big 'Ole Bowl
Cook the ziti pasta well done (not al dente) according to the box directions, then strain and allow it to cool. Better yet, put it in the refrigerator and allow it to chill while you prepare the rest of the salad. Actually once you cook and/or chop the other ingredients, let them chill in the fridge to until the last possible moment. Now put your, parsley, seasoning salt, seafood seasoning, and garlic powder in a small bowl. Then put in the mayonnaise and Creole mustard or worcestershire sauce in the bowl. Whisk the mixture into a sauce. Put all the meat and veggies in the big bowl with the pasta. Put the aoili (mayonnaise sauce) in the big bowl and mix well. Put the bowl back in the refrigerator for a few hours. Serve and enjoy.
You can season to taste and substitute proteins and vegetables according to you dietary needs. You certainly don't have to use the brand names I mentioned. I'm just a name dropper, so don't mind me.
