Chicken, Craisin and Bowtie Pasta Salad

This is a really yummy and easy to make pasta salad. I love the color that the red grapes and craisins give to the salad and the creamy dressing is so good. This salad would be great for bridal or baby showers or even for a fun summer bbq.

  • 1 16oz. bag bowtie pasta, cooked according to package directions
  • 4 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
  • 3/4 cup craisins
  • 1 cup red grapes
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 3/4 cup sunflower seeds
in a large bowl, toss all ingredients together except for the sunflower seeds. mix in sun flower seeds and dressing just before serving.

*dressing:
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl. cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

This is very similar to my favorite chicken salad recipe. I'm totally going to try the sunflower seeds addition!
