Bowtie Chicken Salad


This is an all time favorite pasta salad of mine. I love it. It is especially good to use for wedding and baby showers. I have another recipe that is similar, but it uses a bottle of coleslaw dressing. I prefer this one because it uses good old mayo, which I always have on hand. You can even reduce the amount of sugar in it if you like a little less sweet.


Bowtie Chicken Salad

1 1/2 cups uncooked bow tie pasta
1 1/2 cups rotini pasta
1 1/2 cups diced cooked chicken
1 (20 oz can) pineapple, drained
1 cup red grapes, sliced in half
2 ribs of celery, diced
3 green onions, diced
1 cup craisins
1 cup cashews (if desired)
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup mayonnaise

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and cool pasta. To large bowl, add pasta, chicken, pineapple, grapes, celery, onion, and craisins. In a separate bowl mix sugar and mayo. Pour over pasta mixture and toss. Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving. Mix in cashews just before serving.
