Maybe I'm just pining for spring, but this sounded nice and light and yummy for those hot summer evenings.

Description:
"In the mood for a light supper? Toss togther apple slices, juicy
strawberries, smoky turkey breast, pasta, and tangy mustard-marjoram
dressing. Voila!"

Serving Size : 4

6 ounces whole wheat radiatore or rotini pasta
2 small apples -- cored and cut into very thin slices
