I had posted this recipe over in the Empty Nest Party thread, but I don't know how to move it over here. So, here it is again, in a slightly more elaborate version...

Sweet Peeps Pasta Pecan Salad
With cranberries, chicken and Pineapple

2 cups of rotini (curly pasta), cooked

3 cups of diced chicken or 3 large cans of white meat chicken, diced
1 package of Ocean Spray Orange Craisins
1 20-ounce can of pineapple chunks, drained
1 cup of pecan pieces

1 cup of mayonnaise
1 cup of sour cream
1 package of Hidden Valley Ranch Dip Mix

Combine chicken, nuts and fruit. Add cooked pasta. Mix well. Add dressing and mix.

Note #!: This makes alot, appropriate for taking for a pot luck or luncheon for a number of people. It can be easily made in a smaller version, since none of the amounts are critical except for the dressing.

Note #2: This salad can be made in many versions. Other shapes and colors of pasta can be used, chicken can be replaced with tuna (Limuw's favorite) or chopped apricots, fruit can be replaced with frozen peas. The dressing can be made with all mayonnaise or all sour cream. Other flavors of dressing could be used. Be daring!
