Classic Macaroni Salad

presto pasta nights

I’ve never been a big fan of macaroni salads that are on the sweet side until I tried the macaroni salad at Sammy’s last week. What set it apart was the shredded cheese and radishes in it, and somehow it all worked. So I found a similar recipe online, and played with it a tiny bit to get the macaroni salad I wanted. If you want to lower calories and fat but not taste, use canola mayo instead of the regular low-fat. It has the same fat/calorie count as the low-fat, but tastes like the full fat variety.

I’m submitting this recipe to this week’s Presto Pasta Nights event, hosted this week by Ruth of Once Upon a Feast.
