“This is a very basic pasta salad, easily fixed up by adding extra vegetables or some chopped salami.”

This is an excellent basic recipe for pasta salad. I added small amounts each of avacado, cheddar cheese and cucumber. Very good!

This is closer to my macaroni salad and I like it better without bellpepper. Use a bag of salad macaroni instead of regular macaroni. Chop about a cup of celery and about 3 to 4 green onions, add about 2 tab of pimento,small can of sliced olives and and 3 small chopped gerkins. Mix with a couple of tab of lemon juice, olive oil and a little bit of dill pickle juice. Add salt and pepper and cover and chill for a couple of hours and make sure to chill your macaroni as well. Later mix enough mayo to coat your macaroni and drain a bit of the juices from your mix and add to the macaroni and mix well. Add about 5 chopped boiled eggs and mix well and sprinkle some paprika on top and wala! You have a great macaroni salad!

Sorry, but I thought this terribly boring. I don't quite comprehend the concept of rating THIS recipe by substituting so many things that it's an entirely different recipe. But THIS recipe certainly doesn't "have it all."
