I’m from the south, and I grew on macaroni salad. I get it–pasta salad is usually made with a noodle that’s different than macaroni, but I still really love macaroni salad. WTHR and I teamed up to give you some delicious 4th of July side dishes. Run to the store right now and get what you need to make your 4th of July celebration a big hit!
1 box of elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
1 cup of green peas, cooked
1 cup of diced ham
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 cup of mayo (I use this homemade may recipe)
1 tbs honey
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
In a large bowl, combine pasta, veggies and ham. In a smaller bowl combine mayo, honey, salt and pepper. Pour sauce ingredients into larger and toss until all ingredients are coated. Chill in refrigerator until ready to eat.
