Chicken Salad

I know there are a million of these recipes out there but the reasons I love this one are: there is a good noodle balance in here, it doesn't taste very mayonnaise-y, I love the fruit ratio too.

Chicken Salad
Recipe from my MIL, Debbie Hutchings

2 c. dry shell macaroni-cooked and drained
1/2 c. mayonnaise
1 c. coleslaw dressing
4 c. cooked, diced chicken
2 c. diced celery
2 c. seedless red grapes
2 c. chopped apples
2 Tbls. diced onion
1 can water chestnuts (sliced)
2-20 oz. cans pineapple tidbits drained
2-11 oz. cans mandarin oranges drained
4 oz. package cashews
4 oz. pkg. sliced almonds

Makes large Tupperware bowl full.
