Make your own Pasta Salad

This was a regular meal at my house when I was growing up... it is a fun twist on pasta salad!

Make your own pasta salad
1 pkg pasta cooked and cooled (we use tinkyada brown rice pasta)
4 chicken breasts, cubed, cooked & cooled
1 red or green pepper diced
1 small onion diced or green onions
1 can black olives, sliced
1 zucchinni, cubed
1 tomato, diced
Any other veggies you want to add to your salad!
Dressing - ranch, italian, honey dijon, etc.

Serve all ingredients separately and allow each person to build their own pasta salad with the toppings they chose and then drizzle some dressing and mix!
