This Chicken Bowtie Pasta Salad is not only one of MY families favorite salads, but also my extended families. So, I make this at least once a month and it is almost always at family gatherings! It’s so easy and beyond delicious!  My favorite thing to do is make a giant bowl to serve with dinner on Sunday, and then I eat the leftovers for lunch the next few days!

Here’s a little step by step:
 
Boil your noodles and rinse them with cold water! Place them in a large bowel and let them cool. I usually put mine in the fridge.
While the noodles are cooling, I generally get all the side ingredients chopped up! 
 
Once the noodles are all cooled, add the side ingredients – chicken, grapes, apples, green onions and your preferred nut!

Next, coat the salad with Coleslaw dressing and mix!  I usually put about 3/4 of the bottle on the salad and then leave the end to be able to add to the salad on the days following.
And, that’s it!  Easy, right?
