Sometimes eating less protein is recommended so that kidneys don’t have to work so hard. Our recipe for Rotini Salad with low protein fits into diabetic and CKD non-dialysis eating plans, yet still retains maximum flavor. Cooked rotini (corkscrew pasta) is mixed with a delectable dressing made from mayonnaise, black pepper, dry mustard, salt, prepared mustard, sugar and vinegar. Onion, cucumber and hard-boiled eggs pump up the flavor. This is a kidney-friendly pasta salad that will bring rave reviews at the table yet is low in phosphorus and protein.
