"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Cook macaroni according to package. In a large bowl, mix together the noodles, olives, green onions, and several pickles. ( I usually cut up at least 8-10 dill pickles.) Coat the mixture with Italian Dressing. I usually use about half a bottle. In a separate bowl mix, about 1 1/2 cups sour cream, 1 1/2 cups mayo and 1/4 cup pickle juice.

It is hard for me to come up with exact measurements.....
Suggestions:
1. Use true dill pickles not zesty or garlic.
2. Use a Plain Italian Dressing (Ken's or Wishbone)
3. I only use the egg whites that is why I use so many eggs.
