What is it about chicken and pasta put together in a salad that just says good times and family get togethers? Try this Fiesta Ranch Chicken Pasta Salad and see if a crowd doesn’t appear to help you share your results. This website describes its recipes as “family friendly” and we think they have hit the nail on the head with this one. Try it tonight.

This recipe includes some of the most nutritious food you could eat, beans. Here, one of the beans is a black bean. Black beans support our digestive tracts and help our colons to work well. If you make beans from scratch, you will have to soak them before you cook them. Research shows that this soaking process actually improves the benefits of beans. There is still lots of controversy over whether or not it is more valuable to cook the beans in their original soaking water or to discard it in favor of fresh water. Either way, though, you can be sure that beans are an excellent addition to your diet. In fact, they are so revered in Brazil they have their own food group. True fact. Beans are great sources of a wide range of vitamins and minerals so be sure to add plenty of beans in to your diet.

This recipe also uses other beans, chicken and other vegetables. The result is a colorful and nutritious as well as delicious combination of ingredients that make up this salad. It is a well-balanced dish that can be served on its own without anything else. Or make servings smaller and add in a tossed green salad with a light oil and vinegar dressing.

Beyond that, this salad is pretty much perfect. It would make a great summer outing meal as long as you are careful about the mayonnaise that is one of the ingredients. Bring out just as much salad as people can eat in one sitting and leave the rest safely in the refrigerator. You can always bring more out later (and we’re guessing you’ll have to). Try this dish when you plan your next family BBQ or when friends come over. It will be a sure hit.
