Summer is the best time of the year to embrace salads. I like to make a cold pasta salad using ingredients that I cooked for supper one night to re-invent into a new meal the next day. For the Bow Tie Pasta with Chicken & Asparagus Salad, I used cooked chicken breast and asparagus from that night's dinner with some pasta and tossed with a dressing.
