Knock-off Fast Food Pasta Salad [2]

Knockoff Take-Out Pasta Salad

Lately I find myself drawing inspiration from fast food restaurant menus.  I mean there’s a reason they’re so famous, they’re delicious!  Enter macaroni salad, at first I was thinking to lighten up one place, think chicken.  However, when I tasted it I was instantly overcome with how much it tasted like everyone’s favourite burger sauce, think Golden Arches.   Mike absolutely devoured it, that’s how I know this recipe is a keeper 😍

Serves 6-8

3 Cups small shaped pasta (uncooked) – I used shells

½ Cup miracle whip (or light mayonnaise)

½ Cup fat free sour cream (or Greek yogurt)

1 tbsp white vinegar

1 tsp yellow prepared mustard

1 tsp white sugar

½ tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

1 Large stalk celery, diced

1 Medium pickle (whatever you have on hand)

½ small onion, grated

½ Small carrot, grated

Bring a large, salted pot of water to boil and cook the pasta according to package directions, set aside to cool but DON’T run it under cold water.

Whisk together the miracle whip/mayo, sour cream/yogurt, vinegar, mustard, sugar, salt and pepper.

Fold in the celery, pickle (including all the juices), onion and carrot; mix well.

Add in the pasta, again mix well (it’s okay if it’s still hot).

Cover and cool in the fridge for 2-3 hours.

Taste and adjust seasoning before serving, after the salad has rested.
