One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.

Southwest Chicken Pasta Salad

I took this salad to Crystal beach the other day. I got it from Cooking light, a nice fun summer salad to take on the go!
1/2 pound uncooked penne rigate
2 cups shredded Chicken(seasoned with parsley,lemon,garlic,thyme)
1 cup fresh corn kernels
3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sliced green onions
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped plum tomato (2 tomatoes)
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and place in a large bowl. Add Chicken and next 5 ingredients (through tomato); toss well to combine. Combine orange juice and remaining ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle over pasta mixture; toss gently to coat. Cover and chill.
