"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
This recipe for Mom's Macaroni Salad, by Grant Smith, is from Mom's Kitchen Table,
one of the cookbooks created at FamilyCookbookProject.com. We help
families or individuals create heirloom cookbook treasures.
1 large package of salad-roni 1 cup of mayonnaise 1 bunch of green onions chopped 2 stalks of celery chopped 1/2 cup of chopped green pepper 1 small jar of chopped pimento 1/4 cup of milk 1 tsp of garlic salt 1/2 tsp of celery salt 1/2 tsp of ground pepper
Cook macaroni according to the package directions. Drain and rinse in a colander until the pasta is cold and all of the excess starch has been rinsed away. Let the pasta drain for a while and place in a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Adjust the mayonnaise and seasonings as needed. This is better if you place it in the refrigerator for a few hours and then take it out and add a little mayonnaise and milk. The pasta will absorb some of the moisture. And you don't want it dry.
My sister Marjorie, insists we have this at every holiday dinner.
