This is just a great classic, Macaroni Salad. Plenty of creamy dressing that you know and love, but slightly lightened up - all the flavour, less guilt! Serves 6-8 as a side. For an even healthier option, try this with a mayo-free Creamy Lemon Dressing or Ranch Dressing!
1. Lots of add-in potential here
. Bacon, ham, egg, grated cheese, chicken, olives, diced chillies - go wild! But if this is for a side dish with other strong flavoured mains, I'd urge you to consider sticking with the a fairly classic version. :) I love KAPOW flavours, but there is such thing as too much in a meal!
2. No-Mayo dressing option
- use Lemon Yogurt Salad Dressing
(it's really terrific!). Ideal for both Macaroni Salad and Coleslaw
- keeps for up to 5 days in the fridge. Can also be frozen - thaw naturally (do not microwave thaw) and toss well before serving.
per serving, assuming 8 servings as a side (about 3/4 cup, good amount!)
