Most people know how to make a traditional pasta salad, but why follow the traditional approach when summer is about bringing people together with delicious eats that can only be fully appreciated a few months out of the year!?
Three Bridges’ Deconstructed Turkey and Tortellini Salad is the answer to your pasta salad rut. It’s light and fresh with diced celery, red onions and dried cranberries, but also serves as a heartier snack with fresh turkey chunks (can also be swapped for ham, prosciutto, or whichever meat is calling to you that day!). This dish is reminiscent of Thanksgiving, fulfilling turkey cravings in July, but utilizes a light mayo spread and fresh lemon juice to make it the perfect, light summer salad.
