    Being a new consultant, and sort of a new house wife...i wanted to do a pasta salad at one of my shows. With the warmer weather upon us thought it would use a lot of products and i wanted a dressing for it that can be made in the mmp Thanks so much!

    There's an Italian dressing on the MMP that's good. Or the NewsWire/Weekly Bites had a Greek dressing that uses the new rub. A Greek pasta salad (with tomatoes, olives, feta, etc.) would be fantastic!

    Here's one of my absolute favorites. Instead of whisking (step 1), prepare the dressing in the MMP.

    Mandarin Pasta Salad

    Dressing
    1 t finely chopped, peeled fresh ginger root
    1 garlic clove, pressed with garlic press
    1/3 c rice vinegar or white wine vinegar
    ¼ c orange juice
    ¼ c vegetable oil
    1 t sesame oil
    1 envelope Lipton Recipe Secrets Onion Soup Mix
    2 t sugar

    Salad
    8 oz bow tie pasta, cooked as directed
    ½ cucumber, scored, seeded and sliced
    ½ c diced red bell pepper
    ½ c coarsely chopped red onion
    1 (6 oz) pkg. fresh baby spinach leaves
    1 11 oz can mandarin orange segments, drained
    2 c diced cooked chicken
    ½ c sliced almonds, toasted

    1. For dressing, whisk all ingredients. Cover; refrigerate until ready to use.

    2. For salad, place pasta in large bowl. Add cucumber, bell pepper, onion, spinach, mandarin oranges, chicken and almonds to pasta. Pour dressing over salad and toss. Serve immediately.

    Yield: 12 servings
