Looking for a classic side dish? Nothing beats our Macaroni Salad. Submitted by renal dietitian Beverly from Georgia, it’s one of her favorite recipes from Kidney Kooking, the renal-friendly cookbook published by the National Kidney Foundation of Georgia. Begin with 3 cups of your favorite pasta. Next, add pimentos, onion, green peppers, hard-boiled eggs, celery, dry mustard and mayo. Mix well, add sprinkles of paprika and black pepper, and then chill and serve. Everyone will give it a thumbs up, including those on a diabetic, dialysis or CKD non-dialysis diet, since it’s flavorful yet low in cholesterol, sodium, potassium and phosphorus.
