Day 318: Macaroni Potato Salad

Yield: 4 servings
Time (Start to Finish): 1 hour

1 cup macaroni noodles
6 red potatoes
¾ cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp mustard
1 Tbsp white wine vinegar
1 small green onion chopped
2 sprigs dill
salt and pepper
1 tsp onion powder

1. Cook the macaroni noodles and the potatoes separately. Cook the noodles through and the potatoes, precut into cubes, so that they are a little uncooked. Let both cool
2. In a bowl, combine the mayo, mustard, vinegar, dill, onion powder, salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasonings.
3. Chop up the onion and add to the mix
4. Add the potatoes and the macaroni and chill. Again, taste and adjust seasonings.

Notes: I was inspired by my brothers baby shower to make macaroni potato salad. This one is pretty simple, I made it while in a rush, but it would taste killer with some hard boiled eggs in it or a caramelized onion. You can make more of the dressing too, but I kept it light on this batch. You could also add shredded carrots or cabbage and make it more like a macaroni salad if you like. Check this out, its pretty awesome on a summer day.
