Chef's Note

This is a fresh and healthful recipe. It's often hard to get children (or adults!) to eat fruit, but just about everybody likes pasta. So combine the two!

You can:

  • substitute plain yogurt for the mayonnaise and sour cream
  • add a little nutmeg or cinnamon
  • add some leftover cooked chicken and peas.
For 4 servings

- 250 ml (1 cup) elbow macaroni
- 125 ml (1/2 cup) mayonnaise
- 60 ml (1/4 cup) sour cream
- 60 ml (1/4 cup) orange or pineapple juice
- 1 green apple
- 1-2 celery stalks, from the heart
- 1 peach or 1 mango
- 12 red grapes
- 2 Tbsp. pine nuts (optional)
- Freshly ground pepper
  1. Cook the macaroni in boiling water according to the package directions; drain and cool.
  2. Combine the mayonnaise and sour cream in a bowl; whisk in the orange or pineapple juice.
  3. Halve the grapes and finely dice the peach, apple and celery.
  4. Combine all the ingredients and finish with a grinding of black pepper. Refrigerate.
