Kitchen Tips
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.
Special Extra
Add 1/2 tsp. of your favorite dried herb, such as dill or basil.
Substitute
Prepare using KRAFT Natural 2% Milk Colby & Monterey Jack Cheese Crumbles.
Make Ahead
This flavorful salad can be refrigerated up to 24 hours before serving.
