READY IN: 50mins

I first had this pasta salad at a wedding shower and just had to have the recipe! It has become a family favorite and is served at almost every family function! Prep and cook time does not include refrigeration time which should be at least 12 hours.

I altered this so much that it really wasn't the same salad, mainly to use stuff I had on hand: Left out the almonds, snow peas, water chestnuts and red pepper--used purple onion instead of green onion, spiral pasta instead of bowtie, and threw in some peas. I also added pineapple tidbits and a couple tablespoons of the juice. I also used a LOT more mayo than the recipe called for. I used leftover shredded chicken breast--probably about 2 or 3 breasts. Anyway, it all tasted great--thanks for such an adaptable recipe! :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all salad ingredients and toss with dressing.
  2. Refrigerate at least overnight before serving.
  3. I also recommend making a second batch of the dressing and tossing it with the salad just before serving as the pasta soaks up most of the dressing.
