Last weekend I bought a Greek Chicken Pasta Salad at Costco.  It was pretty good and I knew I could re-make it ….. better :)   So … I bought the ingredients -

Greek Chicken Pasta Salad ingredients

A Rotisserie Chicken at the market

A can of artichoke hearts

Grape tomatoes

Whole grain pasta

Greek Olives (pitted)

Red Onion

Salt and Pepper


Italian Dressing

Cook your pasta – al dente.  Shread your chicken.  Cut the artichoke hearts into smaller pieces from what they come in the jar or can.  Slice the Red Onion.  Cut olives in half (remember no seeds)   Mix all ingredients.  For the big bowl, I added two heaping tablespoons of mayo and about 1/4 cup of italian dressing.  Mix.  Chill.  Eat.

    I bought Costco’s Greek Salad last week and added Peppercini & stuffed green olives (in addition to the Spanish olives). It was super! I’m going to make it myself and add chopped red bell pepper to all the other ingredients. I’m thinking of using Kirkland’s grilled chicken breast strips with Bernstein’s Cheese & Garlic Italian dressing. Why did you add the manonaise?

  2. Karen Says:

    When I make my macaroni salad with the small salad macaroni, I always add mayonaise, so I just thought I would on the Costco-Type salad. It would make it more creamy, I think.
    Thanks for your comment!

    I made this salad myself and used a couple of TBsp mayo as you suggested. I think it keeps the pasta from slurping up all the dressing too fast. I used Ken’s Greek Salad Dressing this time around. It was excellent, but not quite as tasty as Costco’s dressing. Does anyone know the secret?
