I love this pasta-fruit salad! The combination of pasta, fruit, onion and poppy seed dressing may seem a bit weird, but the end results is a really delicious tasting salad, which everyone seems to like! The recipe is from Kraft, but it was a friend who passed this recipe along to me. And I'm so glad she did!
Strawberry Orange Pasta Salad
2 cups farfalle (bow-tie pasta), uncooked
1/3 cup Kraft Creamy Poppyseed Salad Dressing
1/4 cup mayonnaise
4 green onions, sliced
1 (11 oz.) can mandarin oranges, drained
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
Cook pasta as directed on package, but omitting the salt; drain, and cool.
In a medium size bowl mix together, the dressing and the mayonnaise.
Add the pasta and onions to the bowl; stir to coat the pasta.
Gently stir in the fruit.
Refrigerate 1 hour.
Yields: 4 servings
Note: When making this salad, I actually used about 4 (4-ounce) mandarin bowls, which comes in a 4-pack, rather than using the (11-ounce) can of mandarin oranges, plus I added desired amount of sliced green onion and fresh strawberries. Probably adding more of the, and a bit less of the green onion.
