Pasta and peanut salad
( SERVES 10 )
I'm asked (for every celebration) to make this salad as it's so popular! My late mother started making this many years ago and I've carried it on.
- Boil 3 cups (half a packet) of Macaroni - not overdone: still a little firm-ish, not soft! DRAIN and COOL in a LARGE SERVING BOWL (when cooling, give a bit of a stir so pasta doesn't stick together).
- Add all other salad ingredients: sultanas; celery (diced); capsicums (diced); red onion (finely diced)]. Stir through the pasta.
- Add Mayonnaise just before serving. (must be a spicy brand, e.g. Coleslaw/Potato salad flavour); eg Countdown @500gm jar. Feeds heaps! Keep leftovers refrigerated. To make a bigger serving size - just double/triple ingredients. Can add other coloured capsicums.
