Macaroni Salad

This post was first published in 2012. So far July has been pretty mild this year - knock on wood!

Today is National Macaroni Day and since the temperature is suppose to reach 100 here in Northeast Ohio I thought I'd make Macaroni Salad. I got this recipe from Mrs. Beorn when she served this salad at her son's Eagle Scout reception. It's so easy and the slaw dressing gives it that sweet tangy flavor.

4 cups uncooked macaroni
1 jar Hartville Kitchen Slaw Dressing
1/2 cup diced carrots
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup diced red sweet pepper

Cook the macaroni in a large pot of water according to directions (better to be firm than too done). Drain and rinse with cold water to stop the heat from continuing to cook. Add the other ingredients, mix gently. Sprinkle with love, cover and refrigerate.
