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

Dressing:
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)

Procedure:
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.
