Citrus Turkey Salad

I've been challenged again by Lean On Turkey to come up with a low fat/healthy turkey recipe for a family costing under £10. We love pasta and salads in this family so I thought it would be a good excuse to try out a citrus pasta salad using fresh turkey.


For once J actually ate all of his dinner and even asked for more, and then helped himself to even more, so I'll definitely be making this again.
