Try a little hot sauce in the dressing mix and use it as a base for cold macaroni salad. Replace all that mayonaise (pure fat) for an adventurous potato salad and add some chopped pearl onions or echalotes, sprinkle with cayenne pepper...
Want something really funky? Toss in 1tbs of low-fat yogurt & 1 tbs tomato paste, shake and serve !
Salad should never be eaten before a meal. Eat it along with the proteins or after the meal, or make it the meal.
