This gluten-free pasta salad from The Healthy Apple is a quick and easy lunch.  Gluten-free pasta is tossed in a yogurt dressing that has been flavored with orange zest and fresh cilantro.  If you want to make this pasta salad a little more hearty, add strips of grilled chicken breast.  This dish travels well and is perfect for the busy person.
