Simple Sweet Coleslaw & Classic Macaroni Salad

It has been a while since I posted a recipe so I thought that today I’d post two! Both of these salads are very simple to make and kind of “old fashioned”; but I still like them.

 

 

Simple Sweet Coleslaw

½ to 3/4 head of green cabbage, shredded
1/4 cup shredded carrots
1 small onion finely chopped
2 tablespoons finely chopped green bell pepper
optional – 2 tablespoons finely chopped pimentos
2/3 to 1 cup of mayo
1 to 2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
optional – dash of ground red pepper

Mix mayo, vinegar, sugar, pepper, and salt (red pepper).
Toss in onion, carrots and peppers (pimentos), let sit while you shred the cabbage.

Toss in cabbage and mix to coat.

Chill and serve.

It’s even better the next day!

I like it best with the pimentos and red pepper; yummy!

Classic Macaroni Salad

1 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
8 oz macaroni noodles, cooked-drained-rinsed (any short cut pasta will work just fine)
1 cup chopped celery (D does not like celery so I usually have to leave this out)
1/2 to 1 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup frozen green peas
1 carrot shredded
optional – 2 hard boiled eggs chopped

In a large bowl mix the first six ingredients. Add remaining ingredients. Toss to coat well.

Chill overnight covered tightly.
