Low FODMAP Macaroni Salad puts a healthy twist on my Dad’s classic macaroni salad from my childhood. I used a lentil-based pasta, added some veggies and kept all the zip and flavor of this traditional picnic dish.


  • 1/2 cup yogurt (lactose-free, Greek, and non-dairy work here)
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon mustard
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 8 oz lentil macaroni (can use gluten free or regular macaroni), cooked according to package directions
  • 1 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives


  1. In a large bowl, combine the yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper.
  2. Add the macaroni, green pepper, carrot and chives to the dressing and mix to combine.
  3. Store in the fridge until ready to serve.
