Confetti Macaroni Salad

I call this confetti because there is yellow, green, red and orange ingredients in the salad. The dressing is unique because it’s one part mayonnaise and one part sour cream. Please feel free to add hard boiled eggs and/or olives to this salad if that is your preference. This will brighten up your summer BBQ’s and family gatherings.

Ingredients:

16 Oz elbow macaroni

4 ounces chopped pimentos, drained

1 yellow pepper, chopped

1 1/2 cups celery, chopped

1/2 cup onion, chopped

1 3/4 cups of grated sharp cheddar cheese

1 1/2 cups mayonnaise**

1 1/2 cups sour cream**

Salt and pepper to taste

Cook macaroni to package directions. Remember to make your pasta water salty like the sea. Drain cooked pasta and cool it off with cold water. Add pimentos, yellow pepper, celery, onion and grated cheese. Stir to combine all ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix mayonnaise and sour cream together. Season dressing (mayonnaise and sour cream) with salt and pepper.

** Everyone likes a different amount of dressing on salads. If you feel like this is not enough, it’s one part mayonnaise and one part sour cream.
