You don't have to travel to the South Seas to savor this mouthwatering main-dish salad. But if you're already packed, I won't stop you. Just promise to send me a postcard.
Serves 8 (1 cup)

1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon reduced-calorie margarine
2 tablespoons Brown Sugar Twin
1 full cup (6 ounces) diced Dubuque 97% fat-free or any extra-lean ham
4 cups cooked elbow macaroni, rinsed and drained
2 cups (two 8-ounce cans) canned pineapple chunks, packed in their own juice, drained; reserve 2 tablespoons juice
3/4 cup (3 ounces) Kraft shredded reduced-fat Cheddar or American cheese
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup Kraft fat-free mayonnaise
3/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt
1/3 cup Carnation nonfat dry milk powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a large skillet, melt margarine with Brown Sugar Twin; add diced ham. Cook and stir until ham is golden brown. Cool. In a large bowl, combine macaroni, pineapple, cheese, and green pep­per. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, yogurt, dry milk powder, reserved pineapple juice, and salt. Stir into macaroni mixture. Blend in cooled ham mixture. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Hint: 3 cups dry elbow macaroni usually make about 4 cups cooked.
