  • 1/2 cup carrots thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup red onion diced
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds toasted

Dressing

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar flavored (see note)
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Place pasta in large bowl; set aside.
  2. Add chicken, carrot, onion, cranberries and almonds to pasta.
  3. For dressing, whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard and honey. Add salt and pepper, as desired. Pour dressing over pasta mixture; toss to coat well. Serve immediately or chilled.
