    Place vegetable packets on preheated medium-high grill, cook, covered, for 10 to 15 min. or until vegetables are tender-crisp. Grill salmon for 4 to 5 min. per side or until just cooked through.

  • Step 3

    Meanwhile cook pasta according to package directions and drain. In a bowl, make vinaigrette by whisking together olive oil, red wine vinegar, 2 tbsp chives, garlic, salt and pepper. Toss pasta with vegetables and vinaigrette. Flake salmon into pasta mixture. Toss gently to combine. Garnish with remaining chives.
