This was really delicious. I used light mayo instead of ff because I don't like ff so it probably added a point or two but, that was OK with me. My hubby and I aren't even big fans of macaroni salad, but this didn't taste like a regular macaroni salad. A great low point way to get my BLT fix! I layered the lettuce in with the pasta mix at serving time so it would stay crisp. Really yummy! We will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing it!
This was delicious! What a great WW recipe! I added cabbage instead of the lettuce. Will make again during the coming bbq season. Note: This was -not- good the 2nd day as leftovers. If cooking for 2 - cut recipe in half.
UPDATE: this made many more servings than I originally calculated which brought the points down to 2 per serving. It was good. I wish I could've made double the dressing but since its WW I had to be good but it was tasty. Everyone liked it & would eat it again. I even added a few more pieces of bacon since precooked bacon from Aldi is sooo thin. I used romain lettuce since its my fav & white wine vinegar since we were out of apple cidar. Not rating yet. Having as a side dish for tonight's dinner. When I plugged this recipe into my WW recipe builder, it came to 4 points per serving. The items I changed were I am using whole wheat pasta, fat free sour cream & splenda instead of sugar. The tomatoes will be canned diced & the bacon is pre cooked. I will review after I make this. Just wanted to note the actual WW points since this recipe doesn't account for the pasta for some reason.
I just put this through my recipe builder on WW.com. I put in using whole wheat macaroni and also fat free sour cream. Those were the only two changes I made and I said it has 8 servings because I think you should get AT LEAST 8 cups of salad from this recipe. With all of that said, it was only 3 points per serving (serving size being one cup). I can't wait to try it!
Just made this, and yum!!! It's really good. I also did not add the lettuce, since I didn't want it to get soggy. I wish I had green onion, because that would be great in this. Thanks for the recipe!
Ends up being more than 3 points per cup, it will work out to about 5 points, since the macaroni isnt included in the dietary listing. It is 3 points without the macaroni.
I love it and to me one cup was a lot. I made it to eat for my lunches but I would make this for a family gathering, too. The bacon really makes the salad. I, too, did not add the lettuce, figured it would get wilted.
The nutrition data is VERY confusing, saying that the 2 highest calorie items weren't calculated. The noodles and the Mayo. Not sure if it's right, but my 5 stars are for taste.... Loved it. Very refreshing on a hot day like today.
Really good and really easy. My whole family likes it. I would make this even if I was not counting points.
