Summertime mac salad

(1/2) > >>

Who doesn't love a pile o' mac salad?   Goes good with everything...this says Summer to me.

                      Reb's mac ham and pea salad

1 1/2- 2 cups of Miracle whip, and cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups cooked elbow macaroni, WELL  drained and chilled
1 cup frozen green peas, thawed and drained (don't cook!)
3/4 cup cubed smoked ham
1/3 cup sharp cheddar cheese, cubed small (just chunk up 3-4 thick cheese slices)
1/4 cup celery, diced
2 Tbsp diced onions
dash of salt

Paprika, to sprinkle on top for garnish

Mix all until the salad is the  consistency you like. Remember mac will absorb some of the Miracle Whip; so always add a bit more than you think you need.
Tip: DO NOT use the "lite" miracle whip; it will separate and become "watery" in a day.

Mix rest of all ingredients together well, cover and let sit in 'fridge overnite.

Enjoy in large piles.  :P

Nice, that'll have to go on the menu

Definitely going on the menu.

On the menu for me too! Thanks Reb! 😜

Get to it, fellers!   ;D   Lemme know how ya like it. TIP: Put every ingredient in yer mixing bowl, except the miracle whip and sour cream. Stir the macaroni around with all the ingredients, THEN add the Miracle whip and sour cream last. Enjoy!  :P
