Chicken and Fruit Salad

I got this recipe from mom a few years ago and have served it for luncheons at my house.  Last week, I thought it would be fun to invite the sisters that I visit teach to my house for a luncheon. My partner was right on board with it too.  We served this salad.  (Which at first I couldn't find it...but then I remembered where I had written down some salad/side dish recipes...and not only that, I found Ken's cranberry salad written down. haha.  Well, thank goodness I'm posting it all here!)  Melanie made a cesear salad with homemade dressing. (I'll see if I can get the recipe and add it to the blog.)  The kids had chicken nuggets, rolls, grapes.

I thought I'd do up the table all special and Gunner-like...voila:

Chicken and Fruit Salad
Comine in large bowl:
6 cups cooked, chopped chicken OR 2 cands of canned chicken breast
16 oz. cooked bowtie pasta
1/4 c. green onions

In separate bowl, mix: 
2 c. mayo (not miracle whip)
16 pz coleslaw dressing
Juice from pineapple (see below)

Mix and Chill.  Add:
1 can pineapple idbits
1 c. diced celery
2 c. green and red grapes
2 small Fuji apples, chopped and diced
1 bag (small) slivered almonds

Best if pasta and dressing are mixed athe night before.  Add the rest before serving.  This makes a TON.
