Fruit and Yogurt Elbow Salad Recipe

(Family Features) A refreshing salad should be quick, easy, and full of delicious in-season produce. With its countless possibilities for add-ins, a fruit and pasta salad fits the bill perfectly as a dish the whole family will love to prepare and eat.

Mom or Dad will need to start things off by cooking the pasta according to package directions. Preparing this recipe with Dreamfields pasta provides added nutrition benefits parents will love and kids won't even notice. Made from durum wheat semolina, Dreamfields has the same taste and texture as traditional pasta but with 5 grams of fiber and only 5 grams of digestible carbohydrates per 1-cup cooked serving.

While the pasta cooks, enlist the kids to create the dressing - a creamy mix of yogurt, honey and a dash of cinnamon - and choose favorite fruits for the salad. A colorful combination of the season's freshest fruits like sweet, delicious blueberries, kiwi, peaches and strawberries, paired with a refreshing hint of mint, makes this simple-to-fix salad really come together.

Kids can help toss the pasta, fruit, mint and dressing together in a large bowl and sprinkle with almonds for a little crunch. This bright and flavorful pasta salad - perfect for potlucks, picnics or even a lazy summer breakfast - is anything but ordinary.
