1 cup MIRACLE WHIP FREE Dressing
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tsp. dried basil leaves
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1-1/4 lb.), cooked, cubed
2 cups rotini pasta pasta, cooked, drained
1 can (11 oz.) mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Mix dressing, juice and seasonings in large bowl.
Add remaining ingredients; mix lightly. Refrigerate several hours or until chilled.
If pasta is used in a salad, rinse it under cold running water immediately after cooking to remove excess starch and prevent pieces from sticking together. Drain thoroughly before combining with the other ingredients.
