I've made this Spinach & Strawberry Salad a lot and it was always a hit.. I couldn't find my recipe here for it, but this sounds like everything I've used /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

I make a pasta salad that my family loves

Fusilli pasta
green pepper (diced or sliced)
red pepper (diced or sliced)
green onion (finely chopped)
Sliced Black and Green olives (optional)
Fetta cheese (also optional)

Kraft Sundried tomato and oregano salad dressing.

Mix dressing with pasta while pasta is still warm for better flavour.

It keeps well and tastes really great.

I make a pasta salad like that one too but I use the Kraft greek dressing and add grape tomatoes and diced cucumber to the pasta to make it a greek type pasta salad. I prefer pasta salad without the creamy dressing.
