FALL PASTA SALAD

This is a recipe I got from Mr. Food a few years ago.

  • 1 (8-ounce) package elbow macaroni or other small pasta shape*
  • 1 cup chopped cooked rotisserie chicken
  • 1 cup chopped apples
  • 1 cup chopped pears
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped candied walnuts
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • In a medium pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta to desired doneness; drain well and cool. (Rinse with cold water to cool quickly; drain well.)
     
  • In a large bowl, combine cooled pasta, the chicken, apples, pears, cranberries, celery, and candied walnuts; mix well.
     
  • In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, maple syrup, vinegar, and salt; blend well. Pour mayonnaise mixture over pasta mixture; toss lightly then serve immediately.
