Bow Tie Chicken Salad

by Laura

This bow tie chicken salad 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 in your bow tie chicken salad.
