Recipe of the week -- BLT Macaroni Salad
It seems I've had a theme going on lately of summer fun food. Go figure. ;) It's hot and who wants to slave over the stove for hours in this heat? Not me.
So in keeping with this summery theme, I am giving you my most often requested recipe for BLT Macaroni salad. Now I love this salad so much that I make it even in the winter, but it's the perfect summer recipe. It's even better now as the tomatoes are starting to come in. In fact we just enjoyed our very first fresh from the garden tomatoes the other day. Whohoo!!
I have to admit though that the summer is starting to wear me down. I am so ready for cooler temps, warm fuzzy socks and a HUGE pot of chili with fresh baked bread. I'll settle for the salad for now.
BLT Macaroni Salad
1/2 cup Miracle Whip
3 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon sugar
3 cups cooked elbow macaroni (or any other shape you might have in the cupboard)
1/2 cup chopped seeded tomato
2 tablespoons chopped green onions
3 cups shredded lettuce
6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
In a large bowl, combine the first four ingredients. Add the macaroni, tomatoes and onions; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate. Just before serving, add lettuce and bacon; toss to coat.
