Chicken Bow Tie Spinach Salad

I found this recipe at Six Sisters Stuff.  It is SO delicious!!  My family loved it!!  I don't really love dried cranberries, so I substituted chopped strawberries.


Chicken Bow Tie Spinach Salad

Ingredients:
1 pound bow tie pasta, cooked
2 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
1 recipe marinade (see below)
1 (10 oz) bag baby spinach
3 (11 oz) cans mandarin oranges 
1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
1 (6oz) bag dried cranberries, or 1 lb of chopped/sliced strawberries 
1/2 cup thinly sliced almonds

Marinade:

1 cup vegetable oil (I use canola oil)
2/3 cup teriyaki sauce
2/3 cup white wine vinegar
3 Tablespoon sugar
3 Tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Instructions:  In a medium bowl, mix together marinade ingredients.  Pour half of marinade in a resealable freezer bag, place other half in a container and place in the fridge until later.

Add chicken and pasta to bag with marinade in it and seal closed.  Let pasta and chicken marinate in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

In a large bowl, mix together baby spinach, mandarin oranges, green onions, dried cranberries(or strawberries), and almonds.  Add pasta and chicken and mix well.  Add remaining marinade (as much or as little as you prefer) and mix until all ingredients are coated.  Serve and enjoy!!
