1 (16 oz) pkg rotini

4 c. cubed chicken

1 c. seedless green grapes, halved

1 (5 oz) pkg dried cranberries

1 c. ranch salad dressing

3/4 c. mayonnaise

2 c. salted cashews

Cook the pasta according to packaged directions. Drain pasta and rinse in cold water.

In a small bowl, whisk ranch dressing and mayonnaise. Pour over salad and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

Just before serving stir in cashews.

(I've made this a few times now and loved it. I ended up adding more ranch dressing after it was fixed since I couldn't actually taste it. I just squirted it on and tossed it lol. Side note: I'm not a huge fan of Ranch dressing, but on this it is good! It's not overpowering either.)
