Cashew Chicken Salad

Pefect for a nice lunch!

2 cups cooked diced chicken
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 can water chestnuts
1 cup grapes, I usually slice in half
1 cup pinapple tidbits
1/2 cup diced apples
1 cup shell macaroni, cooked
2 hardboiled eggs, diced (optional)
1/2 cup chopped cashews
1/2 tsp grated onion

Mix Dressing:
1/2 cup coleslaw dressing
1/2 cup mayonaise

Combine all salad ingredients and then add dressing and fold. Use enough dressing to make salad a bit wet as it will be absorbed some. If you are not eating right away do not add cashews until just before serving. Place chicken on a salad leaf. Serve with a slice of cantalope and a roll.
