The Chef’s Creamy Pasta Salad

Sometimes you want a side dish that can stand up with any burger, barbecue chicken or pulled pork you throw at it. You want the kind of pasta salad that makes you happy going back for seconds, knowing that you don’t have to get everything; just some of that really good pasta salad. Here it is…

4 cups uncooked elbow macaroni

1 1/2 cup Mayonnaise

1/2 cup Miracle Whip

1/4 cup Champagne vinegar

2/3 cup White sugar

2 1/2 Tbsp Yellow mustard

1 1/2 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Black pepper

1 large Onion

2 stalks Celery, diced

1 Green bell pepper, seeded and chopped

1/2 Carrot, grated

Cook macaroni as directed, rinse with cold water and drain. In a large bowl mix mayonnaise, Miracle Whip (for that tangy zip), vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt, and pepper. AddΒ the onion, celery, green pepper, carrot, and mayo mixture to the macaroni. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or longer to let flavors combine, overnight is preferred! Enjoy!
