  • Combine cooked pasta, chicken, grapes, celery, oranges, water chestnuts, cashews, mint leaves, and cinnamon in a large bowl.

  • Mix yogurt, mayonnaise, and chicken bouillon for dressing together in a bowl until well blended. Pour dressing over pasta salad and toss lightly until all ingredients are coated. Refrigerate at least 15 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Feel free to use walnuts or macadamia nuts in place of cashews.

Try lemon yogurt in place of orange, if you'd like.

You can make this salad the day before and chill overnight.
