Need a yummy recipe for an all-day tailgate or just want an easy side dish to go with your turkey burgers or hot dogs??  Umm this macaroni salad is my all time FAVORITE!  I seriously love, love, looove it!!  I know summer is sadly over {tear} but you can have macaroni salad any ole’ time!

How delicious does that look??
I got this super delicious recipe from my dear friend Katie who brought it to cookout we had over the summer.  It was such a hit the entire dish was GONE in under an hour {and I’m pretty sure she doubled the recipe}!  Yep it was that good so I seriously suggest you try it.  I decided to lighten this dish up by using Dreamfields Pasta which is a healthy {and delicious} low-carb pasta, used light mayo and substituted the sugar for Truvia, a zero calorie sweetener.  I think it turned out pretty good!

So I definitely plan on bringing this, along with my highly requested corn dip {duhh!}, to our next Redskins tailgate.  Of course I can’t forget some zero calorie lemonade and Skinny Firefly, yummm!
