Make Ahead

This recipe can be prepared ahead of time. Refrigerate up to 3 hours before serving.

How to Use Fresh Shrimp

Substitute 1 lb. (450 g) uncooked cleaned large shrimp for the cooked shrimp. Cook shrimp with 1 Tbsp. Kraft Calorie-Wise Zesty Italian Dressing in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat 3 to 4 min. or until shrimp turn pink, stirring occasionally. Then, use as directed.

Makeover - How We Did It

We substituted Kraft Calorie-Wise Zesty Italian Dressing for the usual mayonnaise, and replaced the full-fat cubed cheese with light shredded cheese to give a savings of 160 calories and 24g of fat per serving when compared to that of a traditional macaroni salad.
