Makeover - How We Did It
We kept all of the flavor and creaminess of a traditional pasta salad in this tasty version that's prepared with KRAFT Lite Zesty Italian Dressing and KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Colby & Monterey Jack Cheeses. We also substituted MIRACLE WHIP Light Dressing for the mayonnaise, and used a reduced amount. As a result of these simple substitutions, this makeover saves 160 calories and 21g of fat, including 4.5g of sat fat, per serving when compared to that of the traditional salad.
Add 1/2 tsp. of your favorite dried herb, such as dill or basil.
Prepare using KRAFT Natural 2% Milk Colby & Monterey Jack Cheese Crumbles.
This flavorful salad can be refrigerated up to 24 hours before serving.
