Cliff's Macaroni-Pea Salad
Healthy Exchanges Cookbook p.92
When I was creating this recipe, I realized I was using many of my husband Cliff's favorite foods. So, when he tried it and liked it, I told him I'd name it for him. He beamed for days and couldn't stop telling everyone how good it was. Try it and let Cliff know what you think. Serves 6 (l full cup)
2 cups cooked elbow macaroni, rinsed and drained
1 cup frozen peas, thawed
3/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup (3 ounces) diced Dubuque 97% fat-free or any extra-lean ham
3/4 cup (3 ounces) Kraft shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
2 hard-boiled eggs, diced
1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
1/2 cup Kraft fat-free Ranch dressing
2 tablespoons Kraft fat-free mayonnaise
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
In a large bowl, combine macaroni, peas, celery, ham, Cheddar cheese, eggs, and pickle relish. In a small bowl, combine Ranch dressing, mayonnaise, mustard, and black pepper. Add to macaroni mixture. Toss gently to combine. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Hint: 13/4 cups uncooked macaroni usually make about 2 cups cooked.
