Serves 6

Your favourite sandwich flavours in a salad!  Beautifully tasty!

For the Salad:
2 cups uncooked radiatore pasta
6 slices streaky bacon
2 cups shredded lettuce
1 1/2 cups of cubed turkey breast meat
1/2 cup of cubed  Monterey Jack cheese
8 cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and cubed

For the Dressing:
3/4 cup light mayonnaise
1 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp black pepper
2 TBS milk
2 TBS white wine vinegar
2 tsp Dijon mustard

Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a glass jar.  Screw on the lid and give them a good old shake to combine.  Place in the refrigerator to chill while you are making the salad.

Cook the pasta according to the package instructions.  Drain.  Rinse with cold water to cool, then drain again.  While the pasta is cooking fry the bacon until crisp.  Drain on paper towels.  Crumble into bits.

Combine the cooked and drained pasta in a large bowl along with the bacon and all of the remaining salad ingredients.  Just before serving, pour the dressing over top and gently toss to coat.  Serve immediately.
