We are having Hamburgers for supper. Hubs wanted Hawaiian Mac Salad as a side, so, I made some. We didn’t have potatoes, so it’s not my Grandma’s Potato Mac Salad. Instead, I made what I call restaurant style Mac salad.
And to my dismay, I did not have macaroni in the pantry! I had to improvise and use the salad pasta, or what I call mini tube pasta.
Add-ins were simple: Grated carrots, peas, and chopped onions.
Once the pasta has been cooked, drain it, add to a bowl along with 2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar and the add-ins.
The “Sauce” is simply 2 – 2-1/2 cups cups Mayo, 1/4 cup milk, and a little sugar.
Mix the sauce into the pasta, stir it up, add salt and pepper to taste, then chill in the fridge. The longer, the better.
And that’s it. No hard boiled egg on this version. So Ono and such a comfort dish, especially if you’re from Hawai’i!
Another foodie site that I enjoy reading is “Two Peas & Their Pod”. I love the recipes, photos and tips that they post on their site. Just reading their recipes and comments will make you a Hungry Hungry Hippo…not that you’re a hippo or anything like that, it just sounds good 🙂
Here is the link to their site, and a delicious, easy peasy recipe for Spinach Parmesan Pasta.
