  • I use onion in mine but all my mac salad is is:

    Elbow mac cooked, drained and cooled, mayo, 1 can of tuna, 2-3 hard boiled eggs, and onion

  • I hate mayo. You can leave out the scallion/onion and adjust the other seasonings when chilled:
    This was on a box of diced mixed veggies I bought at Costco (green beans, carrots and corn. I bought the veggies to throw in soups and stews, but could not resist this recipe:
    1 cup uncooked spiral or bow pasta (i used whole wheat shells)
    1 12oz bag Bybee Foods Organic Garden Trio
    4 diced Roma tomatoes (I used halved grape tomatoes, because that's what I had)
    1/2 cup finely chopped scallions (I use used a sweet onion)
    1/2 cups feta cheese, crumbled
    2 Tbl chopped red onion (again, I used a sweet onion)
    2 cloved finely chopped garlic
    4 Tbl olive oil
    1 Tlb white vinegar
    2 Tbl water
    1 Tbl finely chopped thyme
    1 Tbl finely chopped basil
    (instead of the two above, I used 2 Tbl herbs d'Provence)
    fresh ground pepper to taste

  • Cook pasta, drain and rinse with cold water. Cook Garden Trio vegetables as directed (I used a covered glass dish in the microwave) and cool.

    Combine ingredients for dressing, whisking in olive oil last. Combine ingredietns, toss with dressing, sprinkle with scallions (or oregano or fresh basil) and feta.
