Macaroni Salad

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/maraconi_salad.html

From EatingWell:  July/August 2011

Old-fashioned macaroni salad sometimes contains jarred pimientos, diced ham or pickle relish, but this version is simple and deliciously plain with fresh chopped celery, carrot and onion. A combination of low-fat mayo and sour cream lightens up the dressing, and whole-wheat elbow noodles, spinach and edamame add extra nutrients.

12 servings, about 1 cup each | Active Time: 45 minutes | Total Time: 2 3/4 hours

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Cook noodles in a large pot of boiling water until tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions. Drain. Transfer to a large bowl to cool for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Combine mayonnaise, sour cream, sugar, salt, celery seed and pepper in a small bowl.
  3. When the noodles have cooled, add celery, carrots, onion, spinach, edamame and the mayonnaise mixture; stir well to combine.
  4. Cover and refrigerate until cold, at least 2 hours. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, if desired. Sprinkle with cheese just before serving.
