1/2 Photos of Fancy Pasta or Potato Salad
Marsha D.'s Note:
This recipe can either be made with your favorite macaroni shape pasta or you can use for a tasty pototo salad. I got this recipe from the Southern Magazine years ago when I first started cooking. I just changed the elbow macaroni to the ditalini (small tube shape) macaroni and added dill relish.
