Mandarin Pasta Spinach Salad with Teriyaki Dressing                      Serves: 4

Salad Ingredients:
8 ounces bowtie pasta noodles
4 cups spinach leaves
½ cup Craisins
⅓ cup cashews or cocktail peanuts
1 4-ounce can mandarin oranges, drained
¼ cup cilantro leaves, roughly chopped

⅓ cup Kikkoman teriyaki sauce (the thicker, the better!)
⅓ cup rice wine vinegar (may substitute apple cider vinegar)
½ teaspoon granulated garlic powder
½ teaspoon granulated onion powder
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
tablespoon sugar
½ cup oil (such as vegetable oil, canola oil, pure olive oil)

Cook pasta according to package instructions, drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
While pasta is boiling, prepare the dressing. In a jar combine all dressing ingredients. Cover and shake to combine. Chill until ready to use. In a large bowl toss together pasta, spinach, raisins, nuts, mandarin oranges, and cilantro. Just before serving pour dressing over salad, toss, and serve.
