Macaroni Salad

This is a simple macaroni salad, the dressing is much like a coleslaw, so since I can't seem to leave recipes alone I added in some seasonings. I also added in lots of veggies, too much for my liking, so I would recommend adding 2 TBL- 1/4 cup of each. We had this with grilled burgers and grilled corn on the cob. This is a great picnic/BBQ salad.

Macaroni Salad

1 box elbow macaroni
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons of sugar
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder

For add ins, add diced red and green bell peppers, celery, red onions, frozen peas, roughly chopped olives and 4 chopped boiled eggs.

Cook pasta for about 8 minutes, rinse under cold water and drain. Combine all ingredients except the add ins. Add to the pasta and stir in the add ins. Allow to chill in the refrigerator overnight or a few hours (if the pasta seems to be dried out before serving, stir in a little milk).
