The Best Chicken Salad Ever

To me, nothing says "summer" quite like chicken salad. I love this chicken salad mix with the Marzetti dressing and lots of crunchy "add-ins" for texture.  This is really good served in a pita pocket, too.  Happy summer!

1 rotisserie chicken (colossal size)
1/2 cup Marzetti Slaw Dressing
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 bunch red grapes
1 red onion
1 Fuji apple
2 celery stalks
Cashew nuts

* Remove meat from cooled chicken and chop into bite sized pieces. Mix together with slaw dressing and mayo.
* Cut grapes in two.  Finely dice celery, red onion and Fuji apple.  (Dip apple pieces into lemon/lime soda before adding to salad, in order to keep them from browning.)
* Stir fruit and veggies into salad.
* Before eating, mix in cashew nuts.
* This recipe will fill 10 pita pocket halves.
