Veggie Macaroni Salad Recipe

"When I bring this super salad to church dinners, there is usually nothing to take home," relates Lynn Cole of Sagle, Idaho. "Add 2 or 3 cups leftover turkey or chicken to create a filling main-dish salad," she suggests. "The dressing is so good that we use it on potato salads and even lettuce salads!"
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. + chilling YIELD:10 servings


  • 2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 1 large tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1 hard-boiled large egg, chopped
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 cup fat-free plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery seed


  • 1. Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain and rinse in cold water. In a large bowl, combine the macaroni, tomato, peas, cheese, celery, egg and onions.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine the dressing ingredients. Pour over macaroni mixture and toss to coat. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: 10 servings.

"This is really good and easy to make. I added an extra tablespoon of mustard and some salt and pepper just to suit our tastes, but it would still be very good as is."

"I tried this salad with lemon yogurt instead of plain, as I though it would make a good taste combination with the mustard, and it turned out great! This salad is very eye- catching with its colors. Very satisfying!"
