Chicken Salad with Pasta + Cashew Nuts
Whenever we go to a party, party, or baby shower, you usually find at least one salad or pasta recipe, and we always try them so that we can get the recipe from the person who brought it.
This cashew chicken salad actually comes from my sister-in-law’s mother. They offered it at my brother’s wedding and it was my favorite.

How to make cashew chicken salad

Make the dressing and pour it on the salad. Refrigerate for at least one hour and add cashews before serving.
Change it: This pasta salad is not only delicious, but the combination of color and texture also makes it a beautiful salad. Salads are also easy to customize. Here are some ideas that are equally delicious and beautiful:
- Use almonds
- Toasted sesame seeds
- Add raisins or raisins
- Replace the pasta: macaroni, rotini (white or three-color), medium shell pasta. Really any pasta that has some kind of grooves so that the dressing will stick to every bite.
Advance + store
Make it in advance: You can prepare this pasta salad a few hours before serving. If it grows longer, the pasta will start to absorb water and the salad will dry out. If you want to prepare the ingredients the day before, then I recommend storing them in different containers and then mixing them together before eating.
Shop Put the remaining pasta in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
