Mennonite pasta salad

I brought this salad, adapted from my Mennonite cookbook, to Katie and Mike's shower Sunday. Notice, there's no mayo :-)

1 cup grilled chicken, cubed
1 cup shredded parmesan
1/4 cup olives, sliced
1/4 cup sliced onion

1/4 cup basil leaves
2 roma tomatoes, diced

8 Tbs oil
6 Tbs vinegar
1 Tbs sugar
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp. mustard
1 tsp. basil (I used fresh)
1 tsp oregano (also from the backyard)
salt and pepper
