Cashew Chicken Pasta Salad

4-6 cups chopped chicken cooked with parsley, onion, and a little
vegetable oil
3 cups color spiral pasta--follow cooking directions for pasta--cool
2 stalks celery diced
6 green onions chopped--including the green
1/2 cup diced green pepper
1/2 cup diced red pepper
1 package craisins
2 cups whole cashews

1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp. cider vinegar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice

Combine dressing ingredients and toss with the rest saving the cashews
to put on salad immediately before serving so they don't get soggy.
(Although, it is better if they have been on a little while so they get
soft and absorb some of the dressing.)
