Chicken and Fruit Pasta Salad

I do love me some good summery salads.  It's salads like these that you can find in every ward cookbook out there, with slight variations...because everyone loves recipes like this!  This one is mighty tasty and hits the spot on a hot summer day.  I especially loved the apples in this one...tasty, tasty stuff.  Enjoy:)

Chicken and Fruit Pasta Salad
From:  Burch Creek 5th Ward Cookbook

Mix and put in refrigerator overnight
2 c. mayo
16 oz. coleslaw dressing
1/2 c. (or about a bunch) chopped green onion
salt and pepper to taste

6 c. cooked chicken*

16 oz. cooked small bowtie pasta

One hour before serving add:
1 7-8 oz. pkg. slivered almonds
3-4 apples, peeled and cubed (we used a combo of granny smith and gala)
1 c. chopped celery
1 medium can pineapple tidbits or mandarin oranges (or a combo of both)
1 lb. red seedless grapes, halved

Enjoy :)

*If using for a side salad, feel free to sub extra fruit in for the chicken.
