Perfect Presentation Platters

Large Serving Bowls: This Pasta Salad is so bright and vibrant and looks pretty in just about any bowl! I used this Wooden Serving Bowl from JC Penney (that’s on sale!) or you may also love this beautiful stoneware bowl. For a higher-end choice, I love this white floral bowl by MacKenzie-Childs, as well this everyday bowl from her collection, which also comes in blue and now pink!

Individual Bowls: If you’d prefer to serve this Chicken Pasta Salad in individual or smaller bowls, Walmart has these beautiful gray stoneware bowls with silver rims that are so elegant! I also love this black-and-white coordinating set or this colorful terracotta Spanish style.

For adorable salad plates, I am obsessed with this beautiful coordinating set from Target for a great price!

Kitchen Links: I get asked all the time about the products in the background of my kitchen. Much of it is from MacKenzie-Childs, which I have slowly grown a collection of over the years! My favorites are this checkered chopping board, my black and white checkered teapot, and the gray and white checkered utensil holder. I also have this enamel canister that you can find in small, medium, or large.

Can I Prep This Cilantro Lime Pasta Salad in Advance?

Yes! You can cook the pasta and prep the veggies (I’d just recommend waiting to cut the avocado until close to serving time, so they stay fresh and green.) You can also prep the dressing and just shake well before applying. I like to wait until within an hour of serving time before blending everything together so it doesn’t get soggy.

Storing Leftovers

Store your leftover Cilantro Lime Pasta Salad in a Tupperware container and refrigerate, where it should stay fresh for about three days. You can also use a plastic bag!
