With summer coming up and everyone conscience of their waistlines, my friend Sharon Knapp Geisenhof contributed this spectacular healthier macaroni salad. Sharon explains that the carbs from the whole wheat and whole grains break down to sugar at a much slower rate, and the yogurt cuts way down on fat without hurting the taste!

INGREDIENTS:

1lb whole wheat macaroni, cooked
4 hard boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
1 small can Albacore tuna, drained
1/2 of a sweet onion diced
1/3 cup chopped dill pickles
1 c plain greek yogurt
1c mayo
3 tbs mustard
1 tbs parsley flakes
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 c white vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
Paprika for garnish

PREPARATION:
Cook macaroni and drain. Set aside. In large bowl, combine tuna, eggs, onion, pickles, yogurt, mayo, mustard, parsley, garlic, vinegar, salt and pepper. Add cooked macaroni, garnish with paprika and chill.

Add anything else you like, taste it as you go and adjust it to your own liking:) Sharon sometimes adds yellow pepper rings or olives instead of pickles. NOTE: All measurements are approximate.
