Gluten-Free Macaroni Salad

The Players

  • 1 pound gluten-free macaroni pasta, such as brown rice or quinoa.
  • 1 cup organic vegan mayonnaise.
  • 1 cup organic greek yogurt
  • 1 small organic onion, diced small
  • 1 teaspoon organic maple syrup
  • 1/2 tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic dried tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon organic dried sweet basil
  • 1 teaspoon organic dried parsley
  • salt & pepper to taste

The How-To

1. Prepare the gluten free pasta until al dente (it will have a slight “bite” to it), this way the pasta can absorb the macaroni greek yogurt without getting overly mushy. Once the gluten free pasta reaches al dente during cooking, remove from the heat, drain the pasta, and rinse well with cold water. Let the pasta drain while you prepare the dressing.

2. To make the dressing: all you did is add the mayo, greek yogurt, onion, vinegar, tarragon, basil, parsley, salt, and pepper in a big bowl and mix very well until incorporated.

3. Add the drained pasta to the dressing and mix well until all the noodles are coated. Let sit in the fridge at least 2 to 3 hours before serving.

4. Enjoy! This Gluten Free Macaroni Salad is sure to please.
