Instead of heavy cream dressing, try one of these combinations! Light mayo, light sour cream, lemon peel, coarse ground black pepper and fresh herbs/ plain nonfat Greek yogurt, honey, grainy mustard and lemon juice/buttermilk, reduced fat mayo, minced garlic (or garlic powder) and Italian seasoning.
#CookingTip: Pick a handful of healthy green veggies and toss them into your pasta salads. It’s easy since they can cook right along with the pasta. Add them to the pasta pot during the last minute or two of cooking. Drain and cool with the pasta for that just-right, tender-crisp texture.
