Expert Tips

This salad can be kept in a sealed container for up to 2 days.

Pasta salads are a great option when you need a quick dinner or lunch because there are so many varieties. Last week I prepared an orzo and chicken salad with cranberries and almonds. This recipe is incredibly delicious and very easy to prepare. What I like most is the perfect balance of sweet and savory.

You can add fresh arugula to give your salad more color and flavor.

Directions

  • 1 Place the chicken, orzo, cranberries, almonds, mayo, cream, cumin, lemon juice, parsley, cilantro and pepper in a medium bowl. Stir with a fork until well combined.
