Macaroni Salad My Way

Submitted by: I.M.MAGIC

Introduction

Only 124 mg of sodium AND less than 5 grams of fat per serving! I make smaller batches like this because 1) I rarely have more than 1-3 guests, and 2) I prefer not to have too much in the way of leftovers, I like it too much--and I'm into losing weight!

Ingredients

    2 c Macaroni, enriched, pre-cooked (leftovers work!)
    2 lg Hard Boiled Eggs
    1 tbsp Scallions, raw, chopped
    1 tbsp Celery, raw
    1 tbsp Sweet relish, Heinz
    2 tbsp Kraft miracle whip regular
    1 tsp Yellow mustard
    1/4 tsp Pepper, black

Tips

This lunch side dish is usually preceded by a pasta meal the night before, so I can remove two cups of cooked pasta for the salad, before I add any sauce. I like substituting small or medium pasta shells instead of macaroni for a change of pace. I also like cooking the eggs the night before, so they have a chance to cool overnight--they're a lot easier to handle chilled! LOL


Directions

Cook macaroni according to mfg directions, keeping in mind it should end up as 2 cups cooked. Seal in tightly covered container. Hard boil the eggs. Chill.
*Slice eggs in half lengthwise, and scoop the yolks into a small bowl. Add the Miracle Whip, Mustard and Sweet relish and black pepper to the yolks, mix well and set aside.
*Chop the egg whites into approximately 3/4" chunks.
*Put macaroni in a medium sized bowl. Add egg whites and the yolk mixture and stir until pasta is coated.

*Serve well chilled.

Serving Size: Makes four servings
