Crack Salad

For those who didn't hear the story, this salad was named by my brother's mother-in-law. My mom makes it regularly for parties and such, and people get "addicted," hence the name "Crack Salad." If the name is offensive to you, you can call it Bow Tie Pasta Salad.


1 box bow tie pasta--cook 12 minutes
1 can pineapple tidbits, drained
1 can mandarin oranges, drained
1 1/2 c. sliced celery
3 green onions, sliced thin
2 c. cashews, light salt
Optional, add some red grapes and/or Craisins


1 bottle cole slaw dressing
1 c. mayo

OR, if you want to make your own...
1 1/4 c. mayo
1/3 c. sugar
1/4 c. vinegar
1/4 tsp celery seed

Mix and add 2/3 of the dressing to the salad. Let stand. Add rest just before serving.
