Macaroni Salad

Is anyone out there like me? The type who hates salads with a lot of mayonnaise. I cannot stand a salad with so much mayonnaise that you can hardly taste anything else. Here is a great recipe for macaroni salad with NO mayonnaise. A bit different but, absolutely delicious. You will need:

16 oz. of macaroni
1 1/3 cup of shredded carrots
1/4 cup of chopped green pepper
1 1/3 cup of Italian dressing
1/4 cup of chopped onion
1 (8 oz.) container of sour cream
1 English cucumber chopped
3/4 cup of chopped celery
Salt and Pepper to taste

Cook macaroni according to package directions. Make sure to add salt to the boiling water before adding the macaroni. Drain the macaroni and add to a large bowl. Add the carrots, green pepper and Italian dressing and marinate overnight. Add the onion, cucumber, celery, sour cream, salt and pepper. Mix the ingredients well. This salad improves with age.
