“ Brand: Asda / Type: Chicken „
This is another pre-packed salad i have tried for my lunch at work to avoid the vending machine chilled pies and curly cornered sandwiches.
A rather large square clear plastic box with a peel off cellophane lid, a label on the top tells you it's a Asda Fresh Tastes Chicken & Bacon Pasta Salad (375g), also on the lid is the Asda logo a £2 or 2 for £3 flash and a best before date, usually with a couple of days left on it.
This is a bit different from the ham salad as it is pasta based, when you open the pack you see a layer off bits of bacon and a couple of pieces of chicken, underneath comes the pasta twists in a little mayonnaise, all this is on top of a crisp bed of lettuce cucumber sweet corn and grated carrot, you also get a little plastic fork to eat it with.
The fresh crunchy salad goes perfect with the generous amount of chopped bacon and char grilled chicken, the pasta is cooked to perfection, the mayonnaise just adds the finishing touch and stops the whole thing being to dry.
A little more mayo would make it even more tasty but that's probably just my personal taste, also a couple of them juicy cherry tomato's they put in the ham salad would be nice.
For £1.50 (2 for £3) this is a delicious very filling meal that's pretty healthy too, great taste and great price, try it.
