Curried Pasta Salad

This salad is so delicious and very easy to make:

* Boil 2 cups dried elbow pasta as directed.

* While the pasta is boiling, mix together 1/2 cup plain yogurt (or soy yogurt), 3 tbs high quality mayonnaise, juice from 1/2 lemon, 2 tbs curry powder (or to taste), a pinch of salt, 3 tbs sweet pickle relish, and 2 tsp soy sauce or tamari.)

* Combine in a separate bowl: 1 can tuna (drained) or 2/3 cup cubed firm tofu, 1 medium tart apple (peeled & cut into 1/2-inch cubes), 1/3 cup red onion (chopped), 1/4 cup chopped celery, 2/3 cup roasted cashews or pecans, and 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley.
* Combine the two mixtures, stir well, add the cooked pasta, and toss.

* Serve hot or cold.
