Recipes from Blog Hop

As promised, I'm back with a few recipes that I posted on the Recipe Blog Hop the other day.

The first 2 are appetizers and/or snacks and can be found on this post. One is Buffalo Chicken Dip and the other is Spinach Artichoke Dip.

Today, I'm going to post the recipe for BLT Salad. It's a macaroni salad and goes super great with any summer meal, whether it be a cookout, barbecue or just your regular day to day menu.

BLT Salad
2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
5 green onions - finely chopped
1 very large or many small tomatoes - diced (I like to use plum tomatoes)
1 1/4 cups diced celery
1 1/4 cups mayonnaise
5 teaspoons white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pound bacon - cooked and crumbled
Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain and rinse in cold water. In a large bowl, combine the macaroni, green onions, tomatoes and celery. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, vinegar, salt and pepper. Pour over macaroni mixture and toss to coat. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours. Just before serving, add bacon.
Stay tuned for a recipe for Refreshing Summer Soup a.k.a Gazpacho!
