Marshmallow Cream Cheese Fruit Dip

Soften a package of cream cheese and mix with 2 small jars of marshmallow cream; you could use one large jar, but it's too hard to get the stuff out of the big jar. Just use 2 small jars. Then add a teaspoon or two of vanilla. Blend till smooth and enjoy with fruit. We particularly enjoy it with watermelon!

Spinach Chicken & Pasta Salad

1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/3 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup oil
3 Tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup browned slivered almonds (cook on the stove with butter and brown sugar)

1 large bag washed spinach leaves
1- 12oz bag bowtie pasta (cooked until tender firm & chilled)
4 chicken breasts (boiled, cut into pieces- or you can use a Costco roasted chicken and just cut it up)

Mix all ingredients in large bowl EXCEPT spinach, noodles, almonds & chicken. Stir well. Add remaining ingredients (except almonds) and toss well. Let chill for a few hours before serving.

Add almonds and stir in right before serving.

This is a delicious main course salad, but you can also serve it as a side salad with dinner if you eliminate the chicken.

I got this recipe from my husband's Aunt Lorraine Starkie and everyone seems to LOVE it!
