1 1/2 cup red bell peppers, sweet diced
1 cup green bell peppers, sweet diced
3/4 cup red onions, diced
3/4 cup carrots, thinly sliced
1/2 cup green onions, chopped
1 cup yogurt, 2%
1/3 cup mayonnaise, light
1/2 cup fresh dill, chopped or 1 1/2 tablespoons dried dill weed
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
DirectionsDirections: 1. Cook pasta in boiling water according to package instructions or until firm to the bite. Rinse with cold water. Drain and place in serving bowl.
2. In medium nonstick skillet sprayed with vegetable spray, saute seafood just until cooked, approximately 3 minutes. Set aside.
3. Add red and green peppers, onions, carrots and green onions to pasta. Add seafood.
4. Make the dressing: In small bowl combine yogurt, mayonnaise, dill, lemon juice, garlic and mustard. Pour over pasta. Toss and chill.
TIPS: firm fish filets can be used with or instead of mixed seafood. Be careful not to over cook.
Grilled fish instead of sauteed makes an excellent variation.
Make ahead: Pasta salad and dressing can be prepared early in day. Do not toss until ready to serve.
