Thursday's Recipe Swap Meet ~ Macaroni Salad


OK... we know you have all these recipes that you love to make. You got them from your mother, your grandmother, a magazine, or maybe you made it up, perhaps you don't even remember where the recipe came from. Well, how about sharing them with all of us? We are going to share ours with you every Thursday!

My good friend and (according to her husband) excellent cook, Dolly over at XmasDolly and I are now doing a recipe swap; we want to share ours with you and wold LOVE to get some of your favorites as well... So, Welcome to Thursday's Recipe Swap Meet, here is all you have to do:


Post a recipe on your blog, sign the linky on either blog (they will be linked), grab our new button - isn't she cute - hubby says she looks like me... TeeHee? (above, on my sidebar and on my Co-Chef Dolly's blog) and check out the recipes. Don't forget that each week you actually will be getting at least TWO for the price of ONE because both Dolly and I will post a recipe on each of our blogs. How simple is that??

Macaroni Salad

6-8 Hard cooked eggs, peel and chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 box (16 oz.) elbow macaroni, cooked according to pkg. directions (Barilla works best)
2 cans large ripe pitted olives cut in half
1-2 Tbls. mustard (to taste)
salt, pepper, mayonnaise (Hellmann's is the best) to taste

Mix all the ingredients together and serve chilled. Store leftovers tightly covered in refrigerator.

This received 6 out of 6 puppy tail wags, as you can see. It really amazes me what these doggies like to eat, they even bugged us while we were eating dinner so they could have more. As you can also see, Bill really loves this, too - it is one of his favorites. I love how simple it is and usually make a HUGE bowl of it so that we can have leftovers for several days and I make dinners that go well with it. Sometimes I make extra hard cooked eggs so that I can make egg salad for sandwiches for lunch or deviled eggs, which is also one of Bill's favorites.
So now all you have to do is sign our linky so we all can find your recipes. You check out all ours and we will check out all yours. If you don't want to write it all down and you know of one on line just post a link to it on your blog or leave it in a comment if you prefer!

For more recipes, head on over to Ms.BiBi at Daily Organized Chaos.

Let's get cooking..... Bon Appetit!

Awesome! I never thought to add olives...but I'm going to next time I whip up pasta salad. This is an easy one to convert to gluten-free too.

And you are so right...Hellmann's is the best!!!

Bill needs a bigger spoon. ;o)

Give that man a shovel! LOL I put relish in my macroni salad, but I'm going to try olives too. NUMMBERS!

Wow, does that look delicious! I use salad dressing on mine, but the next time I'm going to try using olives too. How's my friend Lori doing these days? The family had me scattered there for a while, so it was hard to do my blogging like I wanted. But I'm back now with a brand new computer and I'm glad to start linking up with my old blogging buddies again! :) - Haupi
