Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta Salad

1

I love our mom's traditional pasta salad that's served cold, so I changed up a few ingredients and this delicious pasta was born. I brought it to our last family barbecue (right before Elyse had her baby and Kristen moved to Indiana) and it was a hit.

8
16 oz Vermicelli pasta cooked, drained, and cooled
2-3 chicken breasts cooked and cubed
1 red pepper, diced
1 yellow pepper, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
16 oz Feta cheese, crumbled
8.5 oz sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained and diced
16 oz Greek Vinaigrette Dressing (I used Wishbone - not sponsored, just truth!)
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl until they are evenly distributed. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving (this lets the flavors soak in a little bit!).
