Chilli chicken pasta salad

Most people like a pasta salad and this one is quick and simple and also safe for those who want to follow the diet for endometriosis - but not compromise on taste.  This is a great dish for the summer and can be prepared in advance and stored in the fridge till you are ready to eat.

  • 1/2 teaspoon mild chilli powder
