Recipe: Fruity Crab Pasta Salad

Our boat was slipped and docked this weekend, so it's time to gear-up for recipes that can easily be prepared and packed into a cooler.  This healthful recipe is made with yogurt to replace most of the mayonnaise and sweetend with honey and a subtle ginger flavour.

from Taste of Home

3/4 cup uncooked spiral pasta
1 package (8 ounces) imitation crabmeat
1 snack-size cup (4 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained
1/4 cup halved seedless red grapes
1/4 cup halved seedless green grapes
1/4 cup plain yogurt
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1-1/2 teaspoons honey
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and rinse in cold water. In a small bowl, combine the pasta, crab, oranges and grapes.

Combine the yogurt, mayonnaise, honey and ginger; pour over salad and toss to coat. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: 2 servings.
