Pasta Salad with Mango and Citrus Yogurt Dressing

Usually when I make my pasta salads I’ll add a protein like salmon or grilled chicken making it almost like a main course. This time it’s all about the side dish, so I combined fresh ripe mango with red chili, red cabbage and spicy peanuts. The whole thing is tossed in a cool and creamy citrus yogurt style dressing. So if you were having second thoughts about this being too spicy, think again. This is a pasta slaw salad that would be perfect beside any grilled meat or seafood.

The yogurt dressing balances out the heat from the chilis, I also tested it out on my wife who is definitely not a spicy food fanatic and she loved it!

Dreamfields Pasta tastes just like regular pasta but contains inulin, a fiber sourced from chicory root to help with digestion, and it comes in all of the traditional pasta shapes!
