Here's a healthy macaroni salad recipe that's worthy of making it to every potluck you've got planned this year. It's simple, it's tasty, and it's ready to impress. What's even more fun is listening to people rave about it without 'em ever knowing that our Simple Macaroni Salad is a diabetic recipe!

This is a wonderful recipe for macaroni salad! Adding some leftover cooked ham or chicken makes a nice meal during the summer months. Rachel

Macaroni salad has always been one of my go to recipes for years, especially in the warmer months. (Though I have been known to whip up a batch in the winter!) My problem now that I have diabetes is having to choose the low fat ingredients. I find most low fat versions are too sweet for my palate. Would it make a huge difference in this recipe if I use homemade or a little regular mayonaise in it?

Using real mayo will certainly change the nutritional info (adding more fat, calories, etc), and will depend on what kind of mayo you use and how much. We suggest using a calorie counter (like myfitnesspal.com) to help you calculate any changes made to a recipe.

I love pasta salad. I recently bought a box at the store, but did not really look at the nutrition label. It is still on a shelf in my pantry because I finally looked at it and it has way too much sodium and fat. I will have to try this.

Celery seeds are really good in this.

The only change I made was thinning the mayo dressing with a little water. It's creamier, spreads easier, and you need less. It stays creamy, too, and doesn't thicken and glop up. I also use Dreamfield's low glycemic index pasta.
