This recipe was inspired by a dirty martini. I went searching for a mac salad recipe with green olives. Couldn't find one that sounded good. So I made one up myself.
Blue Ribbon Recipe
Is a dirty martini your cocktail of choice? Then this pasta salad is going to become your favorite recipe! Onions and pepper give the creamy pasta a little bite and crunch. The dressing is a nice combination of flavors and gives the dish a different flavor than traditional recipes. In our opinion, the salty olives are the best part. Unusual and very tasty!
Ditalini pasta (1/2 of a 16 oz bag, or 1-1/2 cup raw)
fine diced purple onion
fine diced celery
pimento stuffed queen olives, diced
olive juice (from jar)
cayenne pepper (optional)
