How to Make Eydie's ranch style Macaroni Salad


  1. While cooking Macaroni (add salt) pinch lettuce into bite sized pieces (never cut lettuce, it makes it turn brown on the edges), dice tomatoes, celery, cucumbers, and green/red/yellow peppers..mix these together...
  2. Cook Macaroni till it's tender, don't over cook...once it's done, drain and rinse with cold water till it's completely cold to stop the "cooking" process...drain
    add to salad a quarter at a time..you don't to "over Mac" it...you want as much or a touch more Mac than veggies..
  3. Add Mayo., half packet of Ranch dressing, mix together then add salt and pepper to taste...enjoy..
