"This is my favorite chicken pasta salad! The tangy dried cranberries and crunchy cashews combine wonderfully in a creamy pasta salad that is substantial enough for a main dish or perfect as a summer side dish. It is pretty enough for company and can be made up to a day a head. We served this as a side dish at our summer wedding reception five years ago and I still get compliments."

"Superb! Indeed our new favorite chicken pasta salad. The BF ate 4 bowls and it was hilarious to watch!! After having been indoctrinated into the 'grapes in salads are NOT weird' club we're all about that sweet snap now. I did make my own slaw dressing, but otherwise prepared just as written. Cannot wait to make again."
"Super! New favorite chicken salad. Love the flavor variety with all of the different fruits/vegs & textures. The addition of the pasta makes this chicken salad really economical & be ready...this makes alot. Followed instructions and it was great!"
"Excellent! Will make this again! Used all ingredients listed, and it was great."
"Great pasta salad! FulI of flavor! I made this for a graden party and everyone wanted the recipe. Even my 18 month old daughter loved it. I didn't use the pineapple or water chensuts. Thanks for sharing!!"
"This is a wonderful salad and a hit the two times I made it for parties. The Hidden Valley Ranch Coleslaw dressing is a must. I did not put in the pineapple or waterchestnuts and still found it full of flavor."
"Lovely salad! I am not great fan of pasta salads generally, because they tend to be rather bland, but this one is exception. Beautiful flavors and the dressing was just right. But I must say, if there wasn't water chestnuts and pineapples, it would still be just as good for me! The stars of the show are the cashews, and they must be the toasted kind. Since we don't get any miracle whip or colewslaw dressing here in Finland, I was using all mayo and made the coleslaw dressing following the Steve's Soleslaw Dressing recipe."
"I made this for my family and a friend. She liked it so much that she ate it for four days straight! Very good flavor. Excellent meal!"
"OH, this is to die for, loved the flavor the craisins added to this. Not hard to make either. "
