  1. Made this recipe today in an effort to help my family eat healthier. I ended up adding an additional 2 tbsp of light mayo to the mix because it wasn't enough to coat the macaroni. Before adding the dressing, I tasted it and found it to be a little to tart, so added 1/2 tsp of sugar, which made it perfect. I figured 2 tbsp of lowfat mayo and 1/2 tsp of sugar didn't change the nutritional info very much at all, especially since there's 8 servings. My teenage children really enjoyed it! Thanks, I believe I will be making this quite often.
  2. This was just ok for me. I made it for a baby shower I was hosting, but felt like it was missing something. I think I would try it again, but need to see what I can add to it.
  3. This was great! I despise store bought macaroni salads that are swimming in mayonnaise. This was so much better! I love the kick the red onions give. I made this with greek turkey burgers and my fiancee (who doesn't like to eat healthy like I do) loved the meal and gave this macaroni salad his stamp of approval! The leftovers do dry out a bit the following day, but that really didn't bother me. Still delicious and a keeper for sure!
  4. You have another winner!! This is so good. Taste just like the full fat kind. It's easy to prepare and holds up well in the frig. There is just the two of us so I had leftovers. Tasted even better the second time around. Served it with recipe #225206 and recipe #240223. This gave me a couple of low WW point meals. Thanks once again, helluvawoman for a great WW recipe. Keep them coming.
