1 box (16-oz) bow tie pasta, cooked al dente
2 cups cooked chicken, shredded or diced (I used 2 Costco cans (12.5-oz. each))
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1 bag (9-oz.) baby spinach leaves, chopped
3/4 cup honey roasted peanuts
3/4 cup Craisins
2 cans (11-oz. each) mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup teriyaki sauce
2/3 cup white vinegar
6 Tbs. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
Directions: For marinade, combine ingredients and mix thoroughly. Set aside.
For salad, mix together cooked pasta, cooked chicken, chopped spinach, and chopped green onions in a large bowl or large Ziploc bag. Pour marinade over pasta and chicken mixture, stir well, and allow to marinate for 2-3 hours in the refrigerator.
