Macaroni Salad

| a doomthings™ original |

Really, this isn’t totally original because the original recipe came from my mom.  But, it didn’t come from the internet, so we’ll share the originality.  We did, however, modify it to suit our need for more spicy dishes.  This is one of those recipes where I haven’t included any measures, because it’s really all to taste.  You can’t mess this up.


  • Macaroni elbows (about one box is usually good for a medium get-together)*
  • Creamy french dressing
  • Mayonnaise
  • Red chili paste
  • Peppers (of any, or multiple, colors)
  • Carrots
  • Radishes and/or red onion
  • Seasoning salt

*The pictures are for half a box of macaroni with LOTS of veggies.


  1. Cook the macaroni according to the package; rinse with cold water to cool completely.
  2. Meanwhile, dice the veggies.
  3. In a large bowl, combine french dressing and mayo with pasta, to taste (i.e. start with small amounts until you get a taste you like).
  4. Add veggies to pasta and combine well.
  5. Add seasoning salt to taste.
  6. Add more french dressing and mayo as needed.
  7. Serve immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container for a week or so.
