WINTER PASTA SALAD
MAJOR KEY: Cold pastas benefit from being allowed to "marinate". Make this pasta the day or night before and let it develop overnight in the refrigerator.
1 lb. box of Farfalle, Ziti or Bow Tie Pasta
4 cups baby spinach leaves
½ cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup crumbled walnuts (plus more for garnishing)
12 oz. mandarin oranges, drained
¼ cup parsley leaves, roughly chopped
3/4 cup Tastic Vinaigrette*
3 tbsp. rice vinegar
1 tbsp. Tastic spice
1 tsp sugar
½ cup (plus more for garnishing) crumbled feta or goat cheese
Cook pasta according to package instructions, drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
In a large bowl toss together all ingredients. Pour into serving bowl and garnish with more crumbled cheese and walnuts.
- Serve it up!
