Spinach, Tomato & Pasta Salad
The green of the spinach and peas, and the red of the tomatoes, would look very festive with tricolor fusilli or radiatore pasta.

2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
1-1/2 teaspoons oregano
1 clove garlic, minced
6 ounces fusilli pasta
3 cups loosely packed torn spinach leaves
2 cups diced tomatoes
1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas, thawed
1 tablespoon chopped almonds, toasted
