A Lighter Macaroni Salad

Have you planned out your 4th of July Menu yet?
 With it only being a few days away, there is still time.
Most every B.B.Q.  has a Macaroni Salad present. 
 So I thought why not make it as healthy as possible?
 That's when I found a great recipe over at Isabelle at Home.
 If you haven't visited her blog yet,
 do yourself a favor and go check it out.
She is all about making healthy choices.

What a great idea to use fat free or low fat. Every little bit helps.

I found this on Amee's Fit Fridays. I love the use of FF Sour Cream (yum!) instead of mayo. It could be made even healthier with the use of a multigrain pasta - I love Barilla Plus.
