Low Carb Macaroni Salad w/Curry

I love macaroni salad.  This is a low carb, lower glycemic index macaroni salad.  Enjoy.
First, I use the Dreamfields pasta elbows.  If you don't need low carb the ditalini pasta is also great for this.
Gather your ingredients.  I use mayo -- your choice, Mrs. Dash (for chicken - I like the spices in it), Celery Salt, and Curry Powder.
Boil, rinse, drain pasta, and cool.  I used 1/2 cup of pasta (all I had)  so just double it for more.
1 generous - very generous Tablespoon of mayo, stir in, then 3 shakes of Mrs. Dash, 3 shakes of celery salt, and 1/2 Teaspoon of Curry Powder.  Mix it up.

Now, if you like more curry you can certainly add more,  if it feels a little gritty, add a dash more mayo.  Then chill.
Now I like veggies, so to my 1/2 cup of pasta I added 1/2 cup each of celery and mixed bell peppers.  Look how much it turns it into.
My veggie version.
Don't overload on the curry, you can always add more.  I find that after this has been in the fridge for a bit the curry flavor really comes out.

Truthfully, this dish is best the very next day.  Really tastes better.

Happy Wednesday.
