I love this pasta-fruit salad! Especially the combination of pasta, fruit, onion and poppy seed dressing. The end results, a really delicious tasting salad which everyone seems to enjoy!

    *Note: When making this salad, I actually used about, 4 (4-ounce) mini-bowls of mandarin oranges. Which comes in a 4-pack, rather than using the (11-ounce) can of mandarin oranges. I added desired amount of sliced green onion, and fresh strawberries. (Probably adding more of the strawberries, and a bit less of the green onion.)
