Pasta Chicken Salad with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Spinach and Bacon


5 strips bacon, fried and chopped into bite-sized pieces

3-4 green onions, chopped

1 lb tube pasta (I used Cellentani), cooked, drained and cooled to room temperature

1 lb chicken, cooked and shredded (I used ½ of a rotisserie chicken)

4 cups fresh spinach leaves, torn into bite-sized pieces

1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped (I used oil-packed, if using dry, plump them in hot water before using)

1/2 cup mayonnaise

4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Place the mayonnaise and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl. Whisk well. In a large bowl, combine pasta, bacon, green onions, shredded chicken, spinach leaves and sun-dried tomatoes. Toss lightly. Add about ½ to ¾ of the mayonnaise and vinegar mixture. Toss to combine. Add more dressing if the salad seems dry.
