Take a taste adventure with a touch of curry in a deliciously layered, 30-minute pasta salad.
box Betty Crocker™ Suddenly Salad® ranch & bacon pasta salad mix
cups torn salad greens
cups shredded carrots
cups Green Giant™ Steamers™ frozen sweet peas, cooked, drained
medium tomatoes, chopped (1 1/2 cups)
teaspoon curry powder
cup sliced almonds, toasted
Empty Pasta mix into 3-quart saucepan 2/3 full of boiling water. Gently boil uncovered 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Drain pasta; rinse with cold water. Shake to drain well.
Meanwhile, in 4-quart glass salad bowl or 13x9-inch glass baking dish, layer salad greens, carrots, peas and tomatoes.
In large bowl, stir together seasoning mix, mayonnaise and curry powder; stir in pasta. Spread pasta mixture over vegetables in salad bowl. Just before serving, sprinkle with almonds. Serve immediately, or refrigerate up to 2 hours before serving.
To toast almonds, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until almonds begin to brown, then stirring constantly until they are light brown.
For a leaner summer salad, use reduced-fat or fat-free mayonnaise.
