With pasta, chicken, sweet fruit, salty cashews, and a creamy dressing, every bite of this Cashew Chicken Pasta Salad is like a circus of flavors!
Cook pasta al dente according to package directions, then drain and rinse under cold water.
In the meantime, prep all your other ingredients.
In a large bowl whisk together the Ranch and mayonnaise. Add in the chicken, pineapple, celery, scallions, red grapes, green grapes, cranberries, and cooked pasta; toss to combine so everything is coated.
Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Just before serving stir in the cashews.
The longer pasta salad chills, the more it tends to dry out. I recommend either serving this right away, or chilling in the refrigerator for just 1-2 hours. It won’t be at all bad if it chills for longer, it just won’t be as creamy. Either way, though - DELISH.
