As I posted yesterday, we spent some time in the kitchen this past weekend experimenting with some new dishes. One of those was a variation of the Classic American Macaroni Salad. I woke up at 2:00 AM on Saturday morning and got to work on this. While my neighbors slumbered peacefully, I was hard at work on getting all the ingredients just right for my new macaroni salad recipe. Below is a pictorial of that work so early in the morning.
We started with a one pound box of Barilla Elbow macaroni. This is the classic style of pasta this is used to make macaroni salad. You could substitute bowties or penne - whatever you like. But for this recipe, we will use Elbow.
