Macaroni Salad by request

Diana at Forgetfulone requested this recipe and it ties in with Mere's Scrumptious Sunday theme so here's my bonus recipe of the week.

3 cups pasta of your choice
2 tablespoons salad oil of choice
4 tablespoons flavored vinegar of your choice
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1 bunch green onions, minced
3 sweet pickles, minced
1 medium carrot, minced
1/4 cup grated cheese of choice
3-5 tablespoons sour cream
sea salt and white pepper to taste
  • Cook and drain pasta. Cool slightly.
  • Whisk together oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and lemon juice.
  • Toss together and chill.
  • Meanwhile mince carrots, onions and pickles.
  • Toss the vegetables, cheese and sour cream with the cooled pasta and chill again.
  • Serve chilled!
I have also added small tidbits of ham or salami for a more filling salad. Hubby like it when I add chopped olives too.

I wish I had the inclination to cook - but I do enjoy the rest of your blog!
I have something for you on mine.

Thank you!!!! I may have to cut this recipe down and make it just for me! Otherwise, I will have to wait until he's cured of his "low-carb" theory or the twins get back from their grandma's. This is going to be delicious, and again, thank you sooo much!
