Salsa Macaroni Salad
This recipe was on the back of the pasta box and I added and deleted some ingredients.
One 16 ounce package of Radiatore or any small pasta
One 16 ounce jar of medium hot salsa
1/2 cup mayonnaise
One can of drained and washed black beans
One can of drained corn
One can of black olives
3 stalks of chopped celery
6 diced scallions
3/4 cup chopped banana peppers with 1/4 cup of the brine
One small chopped red pepper
3 tablespoons diced cilantro
3 tablespoons chopped parsley
Garnish with shredded cheddar cheese and tablespoons of sour cream on top
Cook the pasta till it is almost done then rinse and set aside
Mix the salsa with the mayonnaise
Add everything together and mix well.
Garnish with the cheese and sour cream
Make sure you salt the pasta water or else the pasta will be too bland.
