Pasta Apple Salad


Yield: 4 Servings

Take advantage of apples in season to make this quick and tasty salad. For a creamier salad, add more yogurt.


2 cups cooked macaroni or other small pasta
1 apple, cored and diced
1 stalk celery, chopped
2 tbs raisins (optional)
6 whole unsalted peanuts, chopped (optional)
1/2 cup plain, low-fat yogurt
1/8 tsp ginger (or to taste)


In a bowl, combine macaroni, apple, celery, raisins and peanuts (if using). Add yogurt and stir until coated; sprinkle with ginger to taste.

"This recipe came from Heart Smart Cooking on a Shoestring by Julie Watson, a cookbook my mother gave me while I was a starving student. This cookbook was published in 1991 by the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.

This is a very tasty salad. I would recommend dipping apple pieces in lemon juice to ensure they do not go brown.

*To make it wheat-free or gluten-free use pasta made from appropriate grains."
