Postby desert rat » Mon Feb 26, 2007 5:56 pm

this recipe ain't mine and i forget where it came from but i sure do like it.

mac salad
1 (16-ounce) package salad macaroni (or ditali
1 cup celery, diced
1 cup red onion, diced
1 cup yellow or white onion, diced
1 cup medium cheddar, diced
1 cup Swiss cheese, diced
1/2 cup Parmesan, grated
1 cup dill pickles, diced
1 cup salami, diced
1 (6-ounce) can large pitted black olives,
drained (or 1 cup diced or sliced)
1 to 2 tablespoons Lowry's garlic salt
1 to 2 tablespoons fresh minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 to 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon horseradish
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1 (3-ounce) jar diced pimentos, rinsed and
1 to 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
Add 2 quarts of water to a medium stockpot and
bring to a boil. Add macaroni and cook until it is al dente,
approximately 9 minutes. Do not overcook the pasta or it will fall apart
when the salad is tossed together. Rinse macaroni until cool. Drain
well and let it dry out slightly. Add pasta to a large bowl. Carefully
fold in celery, onion, cheddar, Swiss cheese, Parmesan, dill
pickles, salami, and black olives. Refrigerate the mixture,
uncovered, overnight (or refrigerate for at least 2 hours).
Mix the Lowry's garlic salt, minced garlic,
white pepper, black pepper, cayenne pepper, dry mustard, horse
radish and celery salt together. Add to salad. Fold in the pimentos.
Fold in 1 cup of mayonnaise to start. Add up to a 1/2 cup more of
mayonnaise if needed. Refrigerate again for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
