Chicken Bowtie Pasta Salad


“We meet no ordinary people in our lives.” –C.S. Lewis

This recipe is from my friend Brandy.  She brought it to an office Christmas party and we all loved it.


  • Ingredients
    • 1 (16 oz) package bowtie pasta
    • 2 to 3 cups cooked, diced chicken
    • 1 cup sliced celery
    • 1 large can mandarin oranges
    • 1 large can pineapple tidbits
    • 2 cups red grapes (whole or sliced in half)
    • 3 green onions, chopped
    • 1 (16 oz) bottle coleslaw dressing
    • 1 (6 oz) package craisins
    • 1 cup cashews (halves & bits)
    1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water to chill.
    2. In a large bowl combine pasta with chicken, celery, mandarin oranges, pineapple tidbits, red grapes, green onions and dressing. Toss to coat evenly.
    3. Chill at least an hour. Add craisins and cashews immediately before serving. Garnish with more cashews.
