From Susan’s recent Summer Salads Column

Cashew-Chicken Rotini Salad

This entree chicken salad is fresh, fruity and refreshing, and the cashews add wonderful crunch. This is the perfect summer chicken salad to serve to family as a casual meal or to impress friends for a special occasion.

 1 package (16 ounces) spiral or rotini pasta

 4 cups cubed cooked chicken (Rotisserie?)

 1 can (20 ounces) pineapple tidbits, drained

 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced celery

 3/4 cup thinly sliced green onions

 1 cup seedless red grapes

 1 cup seedless green grapes

 1 package (5 ounces) dried cranberries

 1 cup ranch salad dressing

 3/4 cup mayonnaise

 2 cups salted cashews

Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the chicken, pineapple, celery, onions, grapes and cranberries. Drain pasta and rinse in cold water; stir into chicken mixture.

In a small bowl, whisk the ranch dressing and mayonnaise. Pour over salad and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Just before serving, stir in cashews. Yield: 12 servings.


As you waste your breath complaining about life, someone out there is breathing their last.

Appreciate what you have.

Be thankful and stop complaining.

Live more, complain less.

Have more smiles, less stress.
