Texas Macaroni Salad

by Mike Keathley
(Waco, Texas)

1 24oz bag of macaroni
1 medium cucumber
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
2 ribs of celery
8 eggs (hard boiled)
2 Cups Miracle Whip (or to taste)
salt and pepper to taste

Boil eggs and prepare the macaroni according to instructions on the bag. Meanwhile...
Finely chop all vegetables, (the food processor is your friend) and drain any liquid produced.
Once the macaroni and eggs are boiled, submerse them in separate ice water baths; this will cool the macaroni and stop the cooking process (it will also make the eggs easier to peel).
Once peeled, mash the eggs. Now, if the eggs and macaroni are cool (as they should be from the ice bath) mix all the ingredients together.
If you have planned a weekend BBQ, or gathering, make this the day before because one day in the fridge makes this so much better.

It is quick, easy, few ingredients, no potato peeling, and it feeds an army!

Good stuff!

Made this with a brisket and baked beans. I was attracted by the fact that I didn't have to peel taters for salad. I tried it by the recipe and it was great, I tried it again only I used mayo instead of Miracle Whip. Big mistake! I don't like Miracle Whip on anything, but it is great in this and needs to be there. I needed more Miracle Whip than the recipe called for because wife thought it was not creamy enough, that is why 4 stars not 5.
