Perusing Pinterest on a cold winter day, I came across a BBQ Pasta Salad side dish. Inspired, I decided to make it my own—and make it a meal. The makeover resulted in a taste of summer on a winter evening that I'm sure will be just as tasty come the warm months.

2 chicken breasts, cooked, cubed and chilled

8 ounces penne (or similar) pasta, cooked, drained, and chilled

1/4 cup diced red onion

1/4 chopped fresh cilantro

4 ounces shredded cheddar cheese

1/3 cup sour cream

1/3 cup light mayonnaise

1/3 cup barbecue sauce

salt and pepper to taste

cilantro for garnish, if desired

Combine all well. Chill. Serve. Say YUM!

Serves 4.
