SO EASY. And I've found it to be a real crowd pleaser.
I posted this recipe a long time ago in my Memorial Day Cookout Menu, but felt it deserved a post of it's own. It can be tweaked to your preferences, and I'll share a few notes and tips at the end.
Gather your ingredients.
Toss the pasta, olive juice and mayonnaise (if you like mayonnaise, use the higher amount listed). Add chopped olives and shredded carrots.
Combine thoroughly and enjoy!
~ If you like creamier macaroni salads, use 1 cup of mayo. If you like less, use closer to 1/2 cup. I find that 3/4 cup works for me. I usually use LIGHT ma yo.
~My mom chops a few stalks of celery and throws it in. Since I dislike celery, I skip this step.
