Serve with a small apple and 1 cup fat-free chocolate milk to complete the meal.
Salad can be made ahead of time. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Or, freeze 1-cup portions in freezer-weight resealable plastic bags. Remove from freezer just before packing in an insulated lunch bag. By lunchtime, the salad should be thawed and ready to be enjoyed.
Prepare using whole wheat medium pasta shells.
