Pasta Salad, Take it Easy on It!

Posted by Cecile at 7/06/2012 05:30:00 PM

Just want to share one of our family's all time favorite healthy salad. It's got meat, cheese, fruits and pasta. This dish is a Filipino style chicken macaroni salad and is really good! The dish itself is a complete meal already. The bad side of i is that, it raises my blood sugar high. The pasta itself is not good for me, but for my husband and son, this dish is perfect. I can eat a little bit of it and I will still be fine though. For now, I eat more raw salads with fruits and healthy dressing using olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Anyway, if you are into  a complete meal, try this one...and for you who is a need to take it easy on this, lol
