Dilly Cheesy Macaroni Salad

Sherry Blizzard


I love a cool pasta salad and fresh peas from my garden on a hot summer day. I also love the addition of the krab, or use canned, drained shrimp. The peas just make this salad "Pop". Don't leave out the hot pepper sauce. Kick back on the deck with a glass of cold iced tea and you're set!
