Bow Tie Chicken Salad

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 chicken salad.

This salad uses bow tie pasta along with rotini pasta. I love that because it make the salad look fun and also adds texture. The dressing for this is just mayo with a little sugar or sweetness. Other items included in here are celery, green onion, canned pineapple, red grapes, craisins, and chicken. You can also add in cashew. My family loves this addition. It adds a salty aspect along with a nice crunch.
