Chicken Salad with Pasta

1 (12.5 oz) can white chicken, drained and shredded
8 oz. cooked spiral pasta
1/4 cup diced red onion
1 1/2 cup fresh mixed berries (strawberries, grapes, blueberries, etc.)
1 cup fresh pineapple chunks
1 cup creamy poppy seed dressing
Fresh spinach leaves
Toasted pecans

Toss first six ingredients together. Serve salad over spinach leaves and garnish with pecans.

Waldorf Apple Salad

About 3 firm ripe apples
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1 cup of sliced celery
1 cup of white seedless grapes
½ cup of coarsely chopped walnuts
½ cup of mayonnaise
1½ teaspoons of honey (or to taste)

Core and quarter the apples, but do not peel. Slice thinly into a bowl and toss with the lemon juice to coat. Add the celery, grapes and walnuts and toss. Cover and chill. Mix the mayonnaise and honey (if desired) together until smooth, add to the apple mixture, and toss.

Ingredients can be adjusted according to your taste (add more or less grapes, etc.).  You can mix types of apples (tart or sweet) as long as they are firm and crisp.  Using both yellow and red apples makes the salad pretty.
