Spinach Pasta Salad

16 oz Bow Tie pasta, cooked al dente
1 (10oz) bag fresh spinach
1 (6 oz) bag Craisins
2 (11 oz) cans mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1/4 cup sesame seeds, toasted
6 oz honey roasted peanuts
Shredded parmesan cheese
2 cups cooked chicken, cut in bit size pieces

1 cup vegetable or canola oil
2/3 cup Teriyaki sauce
2/3 cup white wine or rice vinegar
6 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt

Blend dressing ingredients together in blender or in a bowl with a whisk. Pour over cooked pasta and marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Combine rest of salad ingredients with pasta mixture, toss and serve!

This is a little bit complicated and has lots of steps...but trust me its worth it! It is SO good and the hit of every party!

**I recommend cooking the pasta and mix in the dressing the day before.

**When I'm in a hurry I don't use chicken, parsley, or the sesame seeds.
