Turkey Pasta Salad


Children love this salad with moist chunks of turkey and pasta shapes in a delicious dressing, and it only takes minutes to prepare. You can prepare this the night before, toss with the dressing in the morning, and put it in a small plastic container, with a lid, in your child’s lunchbox. It is also a great way to use up all that leftover turkey after Christmas.

  • Easy to make. My 4 year old who loves pasta came back from nursery with an empty box and he told me his lunch had been very yummy.
