Updated Aug 10, 2010

Ingredients

  • 2 cups uncooked gemelli (twist) pasta (8 ounces)
  • 1 1/2 cups cubed cooked turkey
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 1 medium stalk celery, thinly sliced (1/2 cup)
  • 3 or 4 medium green onions, chopped (1/4 cup)
  • 3/4 cup refrigerated poppy seed dressing

Steps

  • 1
    Cook and drain pasta as directed on package.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix pasta and remaining ingredients except dressing. Pour dressing over mixture; toss until coated. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate until serving.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Rotini or juniorettes pasta can be used instead of the gemelli.
  • tip 2
    Toasting almonds is easy. Just place them in an ungreased shallow pan and bake at 350°F for 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
  • tip 3
    Serve this tasty salad with whole-grain rolls, fresh orange wedges and tall glasses of iced tea or lemonade.
