Recipe Exchange Macaroni Salad Elaine Bannister

When I received the invitation to participate in a recipe exchange, I groaned. This is too much like the chain letters of old. But then I found out it is a great way to reconnect with friends and family. Even if they replied they were too busy or could not be involved at this time, we started communicating again . . . making plans to get together, sharing photos, etc. The internet helps keep us in touch with each other, despite the naysayers.

Macaroni Salad from cousin Elaine Bannister in Newfoundland, Canada

1 box spiral pasta (cooked)
1 green pepper (chopped)
3 stocks celery (chopped)
1 carrot (grated)
1 onion (chopped)
2 tbsp. sugar
dash salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 tomato (chopped)

1/2 cup French dressing
1/2 cup Golden Italian dressing
3/4 cup Miracle Whip

Mix the 3 dressings together - add remaining ingredients. Toss! Let stand 8 - 10 hours for flour to go through salad. Enjoy!
