(grr..for some reason Blogger only wants to post this pic sideways, so you'll have to use your imagination)

I got this recipe from Kelly a few years ago and I believe it originally came from her friend Angie, it makes a perfect summer dinner and it's great for a party because it makes tons! I made it on Saturday night for a little Bishopric get together at our house and it was a huge hit on a 90 degree day.

Tuxedo Salad

1 cup oil
2/3 cup Teriyaki Sauce
6 Tbsp sugar
2/3 cup vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

16 oz. bow tie pasta
Add pasta to the salad dressing and marinade in the fridge for a few hours

10oz pkg fresh baby spinach
6 oz. craisins
3 (11oz.) cans mandarin oranges, drained
1 bunch chopped green onions
1/4 cup sesame seeds
6 oz honey roasted peanuts
1 bag grilled chicken strips or teriyaki chicken strips

This recipe makes a huge amount of salad, but if you half it you end up with half a can/bag of most of the ingredients. Also, make sure you've got a BIG bowl to mix it all together in. Enjoy!
