Pasta Salad with Turkey, Radish and Asparagus
Try eating pasta salad the smart way! The sour cream, smoked turkey breast, and green asparagus bring a lot of flavor to this dish while cutting down on calories and fat.
Pasta salad tastes better the longer it is left to soak. If you're storing your pasta salad, fold in the crunchy radishes and chives just before you serve.
