Macaroni Salad

What can be more American than macaroni and cheese, I thought?  So it was a simple stretch to make a great picnic side dish Macaroni salad with cheddar cheese and diced bell pepper.  Simple easy to make and will feed lots and lots of hungry BBQer’s.

Ingredients for Macaroni Salad:

  1. 1 lb. elbow macaroni cooked and cooled
  2. 4 cups sour cream
  3. 2 cup mayonnaise
  4. 3 tbs red wine vinegar
  5. ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  6. 1 bell pepper finely diced
  7. salt & pepper to taste

Directions for Macaroni Salad:

Cook the macaroni and drain and let cool slightly.

In a large mixing bowl add the sour cream, mayonnaise, vinegar, cheese,bell pepper & salt & pepper.  Add the slightly warm  macaroni and mix completely.  Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. If making far in advance you may have to add a little bit of whole milk to keep it moist, as the sauce will be absorbed by the macaroni.  Add the milk a little at a time until the macaroni is moist but not really wet as too much milk will dilute the sauce too much.

    1. I had some of this macaroni salad and It IS out of this world. I had it for 3 days but made sure I ate only a small amount at a time. It is rich and I am glad I didn’t know what the calories were.
