Brenda’s Macaroni Salad ---I am improvising based on what I saw YOU KNOW WHO Prepare
Box elbow macraroni – cook per package directions
Vadalia onion, diced
Celery – 1 ½ cups celery diced
2 small Greek Yogurt containers
¼ cup mayo (light)
1 TBSP mustard  (Dijon)
Mix the onion, celery, yogurt and mayo together – shake several drops of vinegar- wine vinegar will do fine, salt and pepper to taste
Mix with the macaroni
Also, if you desire, you can dice a carrot or two and throw in as well as maybe ¼ green and red pepper…all depends on your taste….
I think that will just about do it…
