"Very good and will make again. Instead of layering, I mixed the dressing, chicken, pasta, and peas together and served over lettuce, then sprinkled cheese and sliced eggs. I didn't add all the dressing at first, and each person added more to their salad based on personal preference. This would also work well with canned tuna I think."
