Macaroni Salad
Kathykenn says:

can you freeze this dish? Dietitian comment: I have not tried it but do not think it will be the same consistency after it thaws.

Macaroni Salad

This has eggs in it and it has mayonnaise in it. I am sure it is delicious but I am not willing to compromise my diet. The eggs is as I was taught, a protein and I can only have six ounces a a day. I guess it is different because I am not yet on dialysis so I have to follow a stricter diet. Who knew??? Moderator Note: For a lower protein diet you can omit the eggs and protein is 2.5 grams per serving.

I thought this recipe was pretty tasty. It was not a lot different than any other macaroni salad, which makes it nice that it can be both "renal friendly" and just like an old favorite.
