Mandarin Orange and Spinach Pasta Salad

This Mandarin Orange and Spinach Pasta Salad will be the hit of your barbecue or potluck get together. This pasta salad is packed with all things delicious and coated in a teriyaki dressing! When I think of summer I think of barbecues, pool parties and potlucks! I am definitely ready for some sunshine and long summer days. We’ve been thinking about getting one of those stand up pools for our backyards so we can swim anytime we want. That means lots of barbecues and get togethers coming our way!

This Mandarin Orange and Spinach Pasta Salad is one of my very favorite pasta salads ever. I love all the flavor from the teriyaki dressing, and the textures of all the goodies inside. The mandarin oranges, dried cranberries and green onion are what make this salad so delicious, in my opinion. They just give it all the more flavor, and the easy teriyaki dressing you stir in just takes it to all kinds of amazing levels.
