    1      cup           medium shell macaroni -- uncooked
    8      ounces        roast beef, cooked -- sliced in strips
    1      cup           celery -- sliced 1/4 thick
    1      cup           cherry tomatoes -- halved
      1/2  cup           red onion -- sliced 1/4 thick
    1      cup           plain yogurt
      1/2  cup           mayonnaise  or salad dressing
      1/4  cup           fresh parsley -- chopped
      1/4  cup           fresh tarragon -- chopped
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
      1/4  teaspoon      pepper
 
 Cook macaroni according to package directions.  Rinse with cold water,
 drain, and refrigerate.
 
 In a large bowl, stir together beef, celery, tomatoes and red onions
 (separated into rings).  Stir into macaroni.  Refrigerate at least one
 hour.
 
 In another bowl, stir together yogurt (I use non-fat), mayo or salad
 dressing (I use light salad dressing), parsley, chives, tarragon (can
 substitute 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon for fresh), salt and pepper.  Cover
 and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
 
 Can be served one of 2 ways:
 
 1.  Place onto plates or into bowls, and pour a spoonful of dressing over
 top, without mixing it together.
 
 2.  Pour dressing over the entire salad and serve in a large bowl.
 
 This is even great as a vegetarian dish.
