I got this from a Pillsbury magazine. This recipe is a perfect pot luck dish! It can be made healthier by using low cal or fat free mayonaise and reduced sodium soy sauce. I use the red grapes because the color really stands out in the presentation.

I haven't made this but had it at a party recently! It was delicious. I'll be making it & try it with whole wheat pasta & low-fat mayo to make it a little healthier. the only thing she didn't add was the snow pea pods.
