A Summer/BBQ Classic

Macaroni salad without the extra calories & fat of the actual macaroni.  I know pasta is such a big comfort food of so many & no one really wants to give it up, but this recipe has ALL of the same flavors & ingredients in a lot of macaroni salads you see being sold in stores or made by your friends/family.  It's great for the warmer weather & would be perfect on your plate next to a yummy burger or hot dog.  Get grilling & enjoy this salad at your next BBQ!

The recipe calls for:
3 cups spaghetti squash
1/2 cup light mayo
1/2 tbsp yellow mustard
splash of white vinegar
1/2 cup chopped baby carrots
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup white onion
1 hard boiled egg chopped
1/2 tbsp stevia extract
salt & pepper to taste

-- Boil the egg for about 10 minutes then let it sit in cold water.  Peel & cut it up into small pieces.
-- Cook the spaghetti squash.  See my blog post "What Is Spaghetti Squash?" for instructions.
-- Chop the carrots, onion & celery.
-- Add all the ingredients to a bowl & mix.
-- Put the "macaroni" salad into the fridge until cool.
