Guilt Free Macaroni Salad

BBQ and picnic season is here! Nothing better than getting a group of family and friends together, eating some delicious food and drinking cool refreshing beverages!

A side that I like to bring to most gatherings is salad! My fave....well, I love a good macaroni salad, but honestly I hate the calories! So, I had to take the traditional macaroni salad and make a few modifications to make it guilt free. The biggest change was subbing mayonnaise for greek yogurt. That's right greek yogurt! Guess what? No one even noticed the difference! Ha! It was just as good, if not better with the Greek yogurt! So here's my Guilt Free Macaroni Salad!
