Turkey and Craisins Pasta Salad

This tangy sweet salad dressing reminds me of the house dressing served at the Hug-Hes Cafe on their Chicken Pasta Salad.

This is a great recipe to make after Thanksgiving using leftover turkey and cranberry sauce.  But we love this recipe all year round, using chicken sometimes instead of turkey.   

4 cups uncooked bow tie pasta
1 cup cooked turkey cut into bite size pieces or chicken
1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
1 cup broccoli, cut into small pieces
1 carrot, grated
1/2 cup Craisins

1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
1/4 cup cranberry sauce
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon garlic salt
fresh ground black pepper
2 mint leaves chopped fine (opt)

Cook pasta following the instructions on package.  While pasta is cooking mix dressing, and prepare vegetables.  When the pasta is done, quick rinse with cold water and drain really well.  Add turkey or chicken, vegetables, Craisins and dressing.  Chill.  Stir before serving.

Turkey and Craisins Pasta Salad tastes great with sprouts.
