    KenyonJen's Note:

    This is a variation of a Sesame Chicken Pasta Salad sent to me by a friend (which, having looked at the recipe by the same name here, I'm pretty certain she got from AllRecipes.com). I changed the recipe quite a bit to fit my own tastes, and everyone in my office LOVES it! It's light and hearty at the same time--perfect for a potluck or as a one-dish meal.

      Stir in vinegars, ginger, black pepper, and sugar.*
    4. 4
      Pour dressing into a sealable container, and set aside.

      In a large bowl, mix together pasta, cooked chicken, carrots, pepper, and 3/4 of the dressing (reserve remaining dressing).

      Directly before serving, stir in parsley, green onions, and spinach.

      * Make sure you taste the dressing as you're adding ingredients; you may find that you need more or less of each, depending on your taste.
