  • Cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt; drain. Place in large bowl.
  • Add spinach, zucchini, plums and dressing; mix lightly.
  • Top with asparagus and chicken.

Make Ahead

This flavourful pasta salad can be prepared in advance. For best results, toss with dressing just before serving to prevent the pasta from absorbing too much of the dressing.

Special Extra

Garnish with zest of 1 lemon just before serving.

How to Blanch Fresh Asparagus

Add asparagus spears to large pan of boiling water; cook 2 to 3 min. or until crisp-tender. Drain, then immediately plunge asparagus into bowl of ice water. When completely cooled, drain asparagus, then pat dry.
