How to Make Eydie's ranch style Macaroni Salad
- 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...
- 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..
- Add Mayo., half packet of Ranch dressing, mix together then add salt and pepper to taste...enjoy..
