Chicken Ramen Noodle Salad

Summertime...or what seems to be a close resemblence to it finally.  Pasta salads were always around when I was growing up.  I decided to use ramen noodles instead of the normal shells for fun. Just throw out the nasty flavor packet. 





Chicken Ramen Noodle Salad

2 - 3 oz package of ramen noodles
1 1/2 cups cooked chicken, diced
1 cup peas
1/4 cup celery, sliced
1 - 15 oz jar Miracle Whip or mayo
2 tbsp onions, minced
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 pinch of sea salt

Cook the ramen noodles for 3 minutes in boiling water, drain and cool.  In a large bowl, combine the noodles, chicken, peas, celery, onions, cheese and spices.  Fold in the Miracle Whip or mayo.  Keep refrigerated.
