This is a great take-along recipe that I bring every year to family cookouts. It is totally different from other pasta salads and is very simple to make. You can vary the yogurt flavor and fruit combinations to your liking.

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add shell pasta and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 9 minutes. Drain and rinse well. Transfer pasta to a medium bowl.

  • Add oranges, pineapple, strawberries, and grapes to the cooked pasta. Add yogurt and sugar and mix gently.

  • Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Cook's Notes:

Feel free to try orange-flavored yogurt in place of lemon.

If you plan to serve the salad the next day, leave the strawberries out until serving, since they tend to break down the yogurt.
