Macaroni Salad

When I was in my twenty’s, we were so strapped financially when I first made this salad.  I was determined to have a nice macaroni salad to accompany our bar-b-que’d hamburgers.  I had only a few ingredients in my cubboard & refrigerator, so I put together this little salad.  Through the years, I have added many different ingredients, but the family still prefers this basic recipe. ( I have added eggs, onions, peppers, ect).  The dressing is a personal taste choice.  I listed what I use, and adjust to the liking….  So feel free to find your happy salad place.

SALAD

1 pound of Macaroni Salad Noodles, cooked and chilled in cold water.

2 Chicken Breasts, cooked, chopped up and cooled

Celery, finely chopped

DRESSING

Mustard

Mayonnaise

Milk

Ranch Dressing

Pepper to taste

Sweet Pickle Relish

Paprika

HOW TO

SALAD.  Cut and chop and Combine.

DRESSING:  ok so i use basically start with a heaping scoop of mayonnaise, a splash of milk, a small squirt of mustard, a small amount of pickle relish and a circle of ranch.  Combine in a separate bowl.  Taste and adjust to your liking.  Then gently toss into salad.  Refrigerate.  Make extra dressing as the salad tends to become dry.   I usually use additional Milk, Mayonnaise and/or Ranch dressing just to moisten the salad a bit.

After the salad is moist and ready to be devoured, garnish around the edge of the bowl with paprika.
