Makeover - How We Did It

We kept all of the flavour and creaminess of a traditional pasta salad by preparing this tasty recipe with Miracle Whip Calorie-Wise Dressing and Kraft Calorie-Wise Zesty Italian Dressing instead of mayonnaise, using Cracker Barrel Light Cheddar Cheese and adding fresh vegetables. As a result of these simple changes, this makeover saves 176 calories and 22g of fat per serving when compared to that of a traditional pasta salad.
