    I had leftover pasta from sausage ragu night.  I had leftover roasted chicken from Sunday Supper.  I had leftover salad I had used as a side.  I loathe waste so I can’t throw it all away!  What’s a girl to do?  Simple!  Throw it all into a bowl and smother it in a creamy, dreamy sauce and give it a name everyone is familiar with, like Pasta Chicken Salad, and voila!    No more leftovers!  (Need low-carb?  Omit the pasta!)

    CREAMY PASTA CHICKEN SALAD

    leftover pasta (or just make some!)

    leftover roasted chicken, de-boned and shredded (or some store-bought rotisserie)

    leftover salad, consisting of spinach, lettuce, carrots, celery, green onion and cucumber (or cut up these veggies or any veggies you like!)

    Toss this all together in a bowl.  Await dressing.

    CREAMY DREAMY DRESSING

    1 cup mayonnaise

    1/2 cup sour cream

    1/4 cup milk

    1 tbs prepared horse radish

    1 tsp garlic powder

    1 tsp cumin

    sea salt, to taste

    pepper, to taste

    slight squeeze of fresh lemon juice

    Put all ingredients into a jar with lid and shake or place in a bowl and whip with a whisk.  Pour over pasta chicken salad and eat.  Close your eyes, let out a slight moan of deliciousness.  Repeat.

    NOTES: Carb-free or low-carb?  Prepare the chicken and salad with dressing first and set some aside.   Add pasta for everyone else and mix!
