Sweet and tangy pasta salad filled with dried cranberries and almonds. Turkey can be used in place of the ham. Great served right away or chilled briefly.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the bow-tie pasta at a boil until cooked through yet tender, about 12 minutes; drain.
Rinse the pasta in cold water until completely chilled; drain. Transfer cool pasta to a large mixing bowl.
Toss the ham, celery, dried cranberries, and sliced almonds with the bow-tie pasta to mix evenly.
Stir the mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, and sugar together in a bowl.
Pour the mayonnaise dressing over the pasta mixture; toss to coat evenly.
