Salad: Watching Your Weight: Macaroni Salad

I can't exactly say I've gotten a lot out of my membership at a club where I 'watch my weight,'....except...a bunch of recipes.  Yay for healthy, yummy recipes.  Boo for girls that think said recipe should be followed by a brownie or six.  Should I ever decided to get my game together, I've got a little collection going, including this one.  Umm....Oh...My...Yum!  I don't know how this goodness works into a lowfat recipe, I like it as much as my regular.
Here's the recipe for Low(er) Caloried Macaroni Salad
8 oz. elbow macaroni, 1/8 t. salt (for cooking pasta), 1/2 c. reduced calorie mayo, 1 T. red wine vinegar, 1 t. dijon mustard (I added 1 T.), 1/2 t. garlic salt, 1 c. chopped celery, 1/3 c. red onion (I used white, because it's what I had on hand), 2 T. fresh parsley (I didn't add this, but....it was on the recipe card), 1/4 t. salt, 1/8 t. pepper.  Cook macaroni, drain and toss with ingredients.  Chill overnight.

Hi there Christy, I tried to drop a comment to you though I think it was failed. Any way just in case you receive it. Please do following:

Do not publish/remove my comment over choco plagiarism as I've been warned by poeple from WordPress not to mentioned choco web (LINK)till it is taken down by domain admin etc. I have filed complain as well to their web hosting and domain admin.

It is true that this choco had copy mine and your blog content without permission and make it as it looks like theirs'. I don't know how to give you the details though if you really need to know, please drop me your email address and I'll explain by email.

Thank you' Titut
