This is a great summer salad. I was at a get-together and tried it there, and then promptly asked for the recipe. It is very easy to double or triple and adaptable to taste.
- 2 cups macaroni
- 2 tomatoes (seeded and diced)
- 1 onion (diced)
- 1⁄2 green pepper (diced)
- 1⁄2 cucumber (seeded and diced)
- 2⁄3 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup oil
- 1⁄3 cup vinegar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- Cook pasta.
- Mix sauce ingredients and combine all together with pasta.
- Chilling enhances the flavors, but is not necessary.
- Prep time varies.
A great salad! I added 1/4 tsp dry mustard to the sauce. It gave it a little spirited kick!.I have to tell you, the flavors really penatrate the next day,just drain off any excess dressing that has settled on the bottom. This is a keeper of a recipe. Thanks for posting.
I made this recipe for our Labor Day picnic and it was a hit. I did not change or add a thing. It was a sweet substitute for the regular macaroni salad that I ALWAYS make for summer functions. This was a wonderful change. Thanks Housemom for the new recipe to add to my summer collection.
