Macaroni Salad

The Shed BBQ Recipe

Mac Juice:
2 1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 3/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 tablespoon black pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 cup white sugar
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoon garlic salt

Mix all ingredients in large container starting with the wet ingredients and stirring in the dry. Refrigerate and let rest for a couple hours. Save some juice to refresh the next day’s leftovers or to add a little goodness to anything.

Notes: Make the Mac Juice early so it can rest and absorb the flavors. When chopping bell peppers make sure to clean out all seeds. Use fresh seasonings especially the black pepper. Use a good quality finely shredded cheese.

Mac Ingredients:
2 large purple onions diced
2 large green bell peppers diced
3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
5 cups large pasta shell noodles

Salt the water before boiling the noodles. Add noodles and 1 tablespoon oil to keep noodles from sticking together. Mix it all together and enjoy! MommiaMia likes it right out of the pot and some like it cold.
