I usually eat pretty healthy,,,,but probably eat TOO much! Every year on the 4th I make a Macaroni Salad,,,,,,aka "White Trash" Macaroni Salad....Why the name? Because it's got Velveeta Cheese in it! Trust me, I've tried Cheddars, et. al. but it just isn't the same!
So here ya go:
Appx 3/4 bag Shell (duh!) Pasta,,,,,cooked according to Pkg.
4-5 Boiled/ Chopped Eggs- I use Organic/Farm Raised! Ha! (Makes up a bit for the processed Cheese)
One Can Tiny Shrimp (Drained)
About 4 Celery Stalks,,,chopped finely
One Small Can Sliced (or Minced) Olives
Minced Cucumber Chips,,about 1/2 Cup (Not Sweet Pickles,,Cucumber Chips!) Add about 3 Tbs. of the "Brine" to the Mix.....
(Before you do all of this, throw a "Loaf" of Good old Velveeta in the Freezer for about 10 minutes, to make it easier to make tiny Cubes.) Cube appx 6 oz of Velveeta....(Tiny, to match the size of the Pasta)
Throw everything together,,,,,Stir it all together and THEN add Mayo to "Dress" the works. ( Make it a BIT more "Juicy" than you THINK it should be,,
Chill in the Fridge. I've actually have had friends ask me to make this for Parties/events. I eat a bit healthier these days,,,,,but SOME day's I've just gotta make/have this! Great w/Burgers/Dogs or Chicken!
Happy 4th....I'm "hangin' with my Hounds. Even AFTER sedation Shadow dog is going Nutso!!!
Hugs love and a "Liberating" Bus!
