Day 138 : Macaroni Salad

We decided to have a hotdog night so I just needed something to serve with them.  A quick search resulted in this gem of a recipe.  Originally is obviously called for macaroni but I used an organic veggie spiral pasta since that’s what I had on hand and it turned out well that way since the spirals allow all the sauce to stick to the noodle better.  It also called for celery but I didn’t have any and honestly I don’t care for it.  I will list it in the ingredients list though in case someone else does.  If, like me, you choose to leave it out just increase the other three things slightly to make up for it.  I especially like the sauce, and it reminds me of the deviled egg salad sandwiches which I have also made for this blog.

The entire thing came together very quickly and easily and could easily be doubled or tripled as a potluck type thing.  You could even add cubes of cheese or some olives or pretty  much anything else you like to it.
