Cashew Chicken Rotini Salad

1 16oz rotini or spiral pasta
4 c cubed chicken
1 20 oz can pineapple tibits
1 1/2 c celery sliced/chopped
3/4 c thinly sliced green onions
1 c seedless green grapes
1 c seedless red grapes
1 pkg (6oz) dried cranberries
1 c ranch dressing
3/4 c mayo
2 c salted cashew (or peanuts cause I don't like cashews)

Cook the pasta according to directions. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the drained pineapple, celery, onions, grapes and cranberries. Drain pasta, rinse in cold water, stir in pasta. In a small bowl, whisk the ranch and mayo. Pour over salad and toss to coat. Refridgerate at least 2 hours. Just before serving stir in nuts.
