Yummy Chicken and Pasta Salad

This hearty salad works well as a potluck side dish or as a main dish for a summertime meal! 
Several years ago my sister Beverly brought this dish often to family gatherings.  It always disappeared quickly!  Several of my children request it. 

I usually don't put the pineapple in and red grapes are as good as green.  Yum!  It calls for cooked chicken breast.  I usually simmer them in water until done but baked works just fine too.

Bev's Yummy Chicken and Pasta Salad

4 boneless chicken breast, cooked and diced
6 oz. small shell macaroni, cooked and drained
2 C. celery, diced
1 bunch green onions, sliced
2 lbs green grapes (or red seedless grapes)
1 small can tidbit pineapple, drained
1 C. Kraft coleslaw dressing
1 C. mayonnaise
1 C. cashews (reserve a few for garnish)

Mix mayonnaise and coleslaw dressing together.  Pour over other ingredients in a large bowl.  Stir to coat, sprinkle with a few extra cashews.  Chill until ready to serve.
