Excellent healthier version. I did make a couple minor changes. I didn't think it needed 1 cup of mayo. Do it to taste. I used 3/4 cup. Also instead of onions, I used green onions.

I made it and used less mayo, some low fat sour cream a shot of prepared mustard and NO sugar. It was really good.\

I really like this recipe. I admit I used regular macaroni. I will be making this again.

this is a good recipe but to truly make it healthier i used mostly greek yogurt with just a little mayo

Very good!

this was amazing and healthy
