  • 8 ounces bowtie pasta noodles
  • 4 cups spinach leaves
  • ½ cup craisins
  • cup pine nuts or cashews
  • 1 4-ounce can mandarin oranges drained
  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves roughly chopped


  • cup teriyaki sauce (the thicker, the better!)
  • cup rice wine vinegar (may sub apple cider vinegar)
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder (if you have it)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ cup oil (such as vegetable oil, canola oil, olive oil)


  • Cook pasta according to package instructions, drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
  • While pasta is boiling, prepare the dressing. In a jar combine all dressing ingredients. Cover and shake to combine. Chill until ready to use.
  • In a large bowl toss together pasta, spinach, raisins, nuts, mandarin oranges, and cilantro. Just before serving pour dressing over salad, toss, and serve.


If possible, opt for a thicker teriyaki sauce. My favorite brand is Kikkoman.
