My friend from work brought this amazing Cashew Chicken Pasta Salad to our holiday party. She told me to try her cashew chicken salad with grapes, because it was one of her favorites. I knew immediately when I took the first bite that this was a pasta salad recipe that I wanted to make for my family.
She was right! It was absolutely delicious!
Cashew Chicken Salad With Grapes – Good Any Time of Year!
I would normally think about making this chicken salad with grapes and cashews during the summer, but I found it to be perfect as a main dish for dinner any time of the year.
I added some french bread and because this cashew chicken salad with grapes makes a big batch, it fed the whole family with some left over. I am so happy to have another pasta salad that I love, to add to my pasta salad recipe collection.
