Macaroni Salad

This side dish reminds me of my summers during childhood. Macaroni salad was a go-to addition to any meal from April to August. Probably because it takes no time to make, uses fresh summer vegetables, and is a chilled salad to cool down hot summer evenings. Really, I can't be featuring summer wrap-up recipes without including this one. I bet it was a spring/summer staple in your home too, or something very similar to it. 

  • What You'll Need
    • 4 cups of cooked shells
    • 1 medium tomato diced 
    • 1 medium cucumber diced
    • 1/2 cup mayo (more or less to taste)
    • Salt & pepper (to taste)

  • What You'll Do
    • Boil the shells until tender. Drain and set aside in a mixing bowl.
    • Dice the tomato and cucumber (peel first). 
    • Add to the cooled shells. Then mix in the mayo. Sprinkle salt and pepper; stir well. 
    • Chill for at least an hour before serving.
