Meal-In-One Macaroni Salad

Meal-In-One Macaroni Salad created by Gadgetsmidnight

Great for those hot summer nights when it's too hot to cook, this is a very versatile recipe. We like it served with crisp breadsticks. Best if made a day or two before serving but can be served after 3 hours of chilling. Amount of salt to use will depend on type of meat used.

    We really liked this dish and will be sure to make it again this summer. I did make some substitutions. I am not fond of raw green pepper so I substituted red pepper. I also omitted the raw onion. (personal preference, I only eat cooked onion) After everything was mixed I noticed it lacked the color of the green from the green pepper and added some peas. Each family member got to taste test and felt like something was missing. We ended up adding some parmesan cheese like a previous reviewer mentioned. That added another depth of flavor. Thank you for posting this recipe Okra. Made for PAC Spring 2012.

    Wish I could give this 10 stars for ease of preparation and delicious flavor. We loved this great meal-in-one dish. This hearty dish is comfort food at its best. Loved the pepperoni and green olives in it......adds a new dimension to macaroni salad. Every time I walked past the refrigerator, I grabbed a spoonfull. Thanks so much for sharing, Okra!!!!!

    This was really good. I did make a couple of changes for personal preference. I used sliced black olives instead of the stuffed pamento ones, and I left out the onions and peppers. Other then that, I followed the directions exactly. With the little bit that is left, I am thinking of sprinkling on some shredded parmesan cheese over it. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
