Anne's Pasta Salad (Made Lighter)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 0 mins

My Aunt Anne makes the absolute best macaroni salad. It is a must for all family functions. I've taken her recipe and lightened it for a more healthy diet.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix vegetables and cheese with macaroni.
  2. Mix mayo, sugar, vinegar and black pepper.
  3. Mix dressing with macaroni.
  4. Allow to sit in fridge for about 30 minutes. This gets better the longer it sits.
  5. Enjoy.

This was just okay for us. I followed the recipe exactly, except I left out the cucumbers because we don't like them and added black olives in their place.

This was very good. Not overly sweet like some pasta salads. I left out the cucumbers (personal preference) but otherwise stayed to the recipe. I would make this again.

We liked this ALOT! I have never used shallots for anything before and these gave it a nice flavor w/o being too overpowering like you might get w/ onions! Also, I used whole wheat pasta. I will definately make this again. Thanks for a great recipe, MsSally!
