Poppy Seed Chicken Pasta Salad

This one is a favorite in our house for warm days! The kids love it and it is always refreshing and makes a huge batch so there is always left overs!

1 Box of Curly or Elbow Noddles
1 Large Bunch of Fresh Seedless Grapes (Green or Red)
3 Granny Smith Apples cut into very tiny chunks
2 Stocks of Celery chopped small
slivered almonds (unsalted)
1 jar of Poppy Seed Dressing (I use Marzetti dressing)
4 Large Chicken Breasts Cooked and diced up (you can use left overs from the night before too.. or even left over turkey)

Boil your noodles till they are done. (i tend to like mine a little more firm).
In a large bowl, mix all your items except the apples and dressing. Gently toss in the dressing stiring the salad gently making sure to coat everything evenly. Add dressing till everything is coated well. (you may have dressing left and that is ok!). Place in your fridge and chill till dinner. Add apple slices right before dinner to prevent apple from browning. Serve chilled.
