Made By: Amanda Figge


Dressing:



·        
½ cup fat-free, vanilla yogurt



·        
2 tsp cider vinegar



·        
1 tsp grated lemon zest



·        
½ tsp poppy seeds



·        
¼ tsp garlic powder



·        
¼ tsp salt



·        
¼ tsp pepper

Salad: 

·        
6 oz whole grain penne



·        
12 oz cooked, skinless chicken breast, cut into
1/2-inch cubes



·        
3 oz spinach, cut into bite-size pieces



·        
1 small red bell pepper, chopped



·        
1 small red onion, halved and slivered

·        
¼ cup almonds, dry-roasted



In a small bowl, whisk
together dressing ingredients and set aside.

Prepare the pasta using package ingredients. Omit the salt. Drain in a colander
