    Lauriann Mosillami's Note:

    I got this recipe from Pampered chef. It is a wonderful light salad, even the kids ate it! The dressing tastes better if made ahead and allowed to "meld" the flavors.

      4 Stars, very tasty, someone demanded the recipe as soon as I mixed it together. The spinach should be mixed with the pasta in Step 9. To serve at work, I stored the pasta, cucumber, red bell pepper and onion in a large locking bag, and stored each of the following in a separate sandwich locking bag: chicken, drained mandarin oranges, toasted slivered almonds. I carried my container of spinach separately, and the dressing separately. Best to consume all at one sitting; spinach will deteriorate fast once mixed in. Made for My 3 Chefs Spring 2008.
