Creamy Macaroni Salad Free PD Recipe

Macaroni Salad - ©

Creamy Macaroni Salad is a summertime picnic favorite for many. I had to give it a Protective Diet makeover. This version eliminates the fatty mayo and dairy, but isn’t missing the creaminess and flavor of the original. Your friends will never guess it is heart healthy and what you have been eating to slim down on a Protective Diet.

    I was surprised at using a firm tofu for the sauce since we are blending it. Can you describe why you didn’t use a soft tofu? Thanks!

      Soft will turn into a runny liquid when blended in a high-speed blender. Extra firm or firm water packed organic tofu is the only tofu used for all Protective Diet recipes. This type preforms best, is additive free and makes restocking your PD Workplace For Wellness easy.

    I just made this and it was good. For my tastes, though, the next time I make it, I will use the Whipped Miracle Sandwich Spread for the dressing. The other thing I did was I sprinkled it with just a “touch” of India Black Kala Namak Salt, which has a sulpher or egg smell and it made a big difference in the taste. You don’t need much 🙂

    I absolutely LOVE this salad. Macaroni salad was my favorite food most of my life, and this is almost spot on as far as having the same taste. Slight taste of tofu, but barely noticeable. I make this about ever other week, and living alone it lasts me almost a week. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

    Macaroni salad was one of my favorite salads growing up. I was very happy to find that this recipe is a great replacement for our family favorite. I will be making this recipe often in the future.

    I finally made this recipe. Great summer salad.
    When I served it, I had some pesto sauce leftover so spooned a little in it. Moistened it up and gave it another layer of flavor. Try it! Thanks again for making such delicious meals.

    This will be one of my weekly dishes, love it and who would even know there was no mayo. It was a little dry when I first put it together so I added more soy milk which then gave it that creamy macaroni salad texture. I also diced up all my veggies, next time I will use the peeler for the carrots so the orange color will be more prominent. Can’t wait to bring this to a gathering for others to see that eating healthy can taste great! 🙂
