Gluten-Free Pretzels, Snyder’s of Hanover,KKA*
Cinnamon Apple Chips, Good Health Natural Foods,
This corn pasta salad is made from leftovers of the above Simple Corn Parmesan Pasta recipe, leftover chicken pieces, shredded carrots, frozen peas and a vinaigrette salad dressing. Easy to throw together. You can use deli meats as well. Just cut them into little bite sizes. This is a refreshing very tasty pasta salad that is good cold. Crunchy gluten-free pretzels fill out this lunch’s appeal. A handful offers just enough a variety. We included two fruits for this lunch box. Good fresh pears are easily found in stores this time of year. Look for the cute miniature ones – easier to eat. One is enough. Then we added a couple of cinnamon apple slices. As you know, we like to add cinnamon to as many meals as possible since it is so full of needed nutrient benefits.
