Expert Tips

To toast almonds, spread on cookies sheet; bake at 350°F 5 to 7 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally.

Prepare the salad one day in advance; cover and refrigerate it. Before serving time, stir the salad; if it seems dry, moisten it with 1 to 2 tablespoons of milk.

Directions

  • 1 Cook and drain pasta as directed on package. Rinse with cold water to cool; drain well.
  • 2 In large bowl, mix cooked pasta, chicken, celery and cherries. In small bowl, beat all dressing ingredients with wire whisk until well blended. Pour dressing over salad; toss gently to coat. Fold in almonds.
