Kind of tasteless . Maybe if you put other spices like cummin will be better .

Yet another delicious way to enjoy chicken salad. The pasta was a nice twist and for mine I used a high fiber white pasta (Ronzoni) and fat free mayo and Greek yogurt. The yogurt makes the dressing so creamy, far better than mayo alone. The apples and celery add a lovely crunch as well as the cashew garnish. I think scallions or red onions would be wonderful alternatives to the onion and would add both flavor and color. Definitely planning to make this again.
