Here’s a twist on making a macaroni salad. Forget the bowl and dig out a Bundt pan or ring mould. Make the salad and press it into the mould. Refrigerate the salad overnight so it holds together. When ready to serve invert it onto a platter. If you’re serving a lot of guests, it’s a perfect make-ahead salad and you can make several of them. – Detroit Free Press/McClatchy-Tribune Information Services
250g dry elbow macaroni, cooked and drained1 cup chopped celery or cucumber1/2 cup chopped green pepper1/2 cup chopped radishes2 tbsp chopped sweet onion1/2 tsp salt1 package (250g) reduced-fat cream cheese, softened1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise1/4 cup sweet pickle relish1 tbsp prepared mustardLettuce leaves and additional radishes for garnish
Make several of these up to two days ahead.
In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients; set aside. In another bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth; add mayonnaise, relish and mustard. Fold into macaroni mixture. Press into a 6-cup ring mold (or Bundt pan) coated with cooking spray. Refrigerate overnight. Just before serving, place lettuce leaves on top and invert and unmold salad onto a serving platter. Garnish with radishes.
