Deli-Style Macaroni Salad
With summer fast approaching it’s time to once again dig out those pasta recipes. Barbecues and pasta salads are meant for each other. I know for some people it’s easier to stop at the local deli and pick up a pound or two of pasta salad but let’s face it that can get expensive and who wants to run to the grocery store all summer long? Homemade Deli-style Macaroni Salad taste so much better too.
Deli-style Macaroni Salad is made with ingredients you probably have in your refrigerator and pantry right now. Which means making pasta salad(s) at home is less-expensive and more economical than buying it at the grocery store deli. With a well stocked pantry, you can make any number of pasta salads. Another bonus, making pasta salad(s) at home yields more salad, which means more to salad to enjoy.
Next time you’re at the grocery store, stock up on pasta salad ingredients such as; different pasta ‘shapes’, black olives, pimentos, canned beans, tuna, shrimp, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, capers, canned fruit(s), mini marshmallows and so on. Also keep in your pantry: miracle whip, mayonnaise, vinegar(s), mustard(s), marshmallow fluff, pudding mix, jello mix and so on. You’ll be prepared to whip up a pasta salad(s) or fruit salad anytime!
