Bowtie Chicken Salad

This pasta salad is so good.  We have actually used it as a meal before.  You could use any pasta, but the bowtie make it so beautiful.  Grapes seem to be a bit cheaper right now so it is a great time for this salad!! It makes a really large bowl or salad.

Bowtie Chicken Salad
2 cups cooked chicken, shredded or cubed
1 -16 oz. box of bowtie pasta
1 large can pineapple tidbits, drain but reserve the juice.
2 cups red grapes, cut in half
1 cup diced celery
1 cup cashew pieces
Place all ingredients, except cashews in a larget bowl.
1 bottle coleslaw dressing
1 cup mayonaise
reserved pinapple juice
Mix dressing ingredients until smooth.  Poor over salad ingredients, mix gently until evenly covered. 
Add cashews and mix.
This salad is best if made a few hours before serving to allow the flavors to mix.
You could also use the colored pasta for a festive look!!


  1. Oh, yum. Bowtie pasta just makes past dishes taste better. Why is that? Maybe because it's kind of dressed up? Definitely going to try this recipe.

  2. Looks delicious! I think I'll make this for the 4th of July(can you believe it is just around the corner. Time is flying by!)

  3. A great summer salad for those potlucks and barbeques.
