And this year I try to change a little and I make a salad a little bit more healthy, after all we have plenty to eat on this day.
This recipe is the perfect choice to celebrate without guilt of what we are eating, you can say it's a full meal or a great side dish.
It is definitely an option a little bit more healthy to enjoy this special day.
Celebrate this July 4th in a big way alongside your friends and family.
- 1 pound pasta of your choice
- 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup nonfat sour cream
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 cup chopped celery
- 1 cup chopped bell pepper
- 1 cup chopped green onions
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro or parsley
- juice of 1 lemon
- 4 ounces diced cooked ham low fat
- salt and pepper to taste
Cook pasta according to package directions. Remember to add enough salt to the water where cooking the pasta this way will have a better flavor.
Once ready pass through a colander and sprinkle with cold water to stop the cooking procces.
In a separate bowl stir all ingredients except the cilantro or parsley.
When the pasta is ready incorporate all the ingredients and stir well.
Chill at least an hour.
Before serving add the cilantro or parsley.
I recommend serving it very cold, but also may be served at room temperature.
This recipe makes 14 servings.
