Substitutes for high-fat mayonnaise and sour cream help give this salad its classic flavor, without the classic fat content.

Ingredients
  • 4 1/2 cup cooked macaroni, kept warm
  • 3/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 3 Tbsp sweet pickle relish
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper(s), diced
  • 1 medium green pepper(s), diced
  • 1 medium carrot(s), diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion(s), minced
  • 1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste
Instructions
  • While macaroni is still warm, place in a large bowl. Add mayonnaise, sour cream and relish; toss to coat. Add peppers, carrot and onion; toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • Serve warm or chilled. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.
Notes
  • Consider putting a little heat in traditional macaroni salad by blending 1 teaspoon of wasabi powder into the sour cream.
Chef Tips
  • We renovated Macaroni Salad by:
    • Swapping fat-free mayonnaise and sour cream for their high-fat originals.

    • Adding fresh vegetables for flavor, color and a nutrient boost.
