Ono Potato Macaroni Salad
Added on Jan 26, 2019
1.5 lbs. creamer potatoes (the little potatoes)
1 cup macaroni, uncooked
2 hard-cooked peeled eggs, chopped
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1 (15 oz.) bottle coleslaw dressing
sliced green onions, for garnish

Cut up your little potatoes into halves (or quarters – depending on how big they are.) You basically want a 1-inch size chunk of potato. Put them into a large pot of water over medium-high heat and bring to a gentle boil. Once the water starts boiling, add in macaroni. Stir well. Make sure to stir the potatoes and macaroni occasionally while cooking so they don’t stick to the bottom of the pot. Once the noodles are tender, drain the potatoes and noodles and allow them to cool for about 15 minutes or so. Once they’re cooled off, add potatoes and noodles to a large bowl. Mix in chopped hard-cooked eggs, sliced carrots and coleslaw dressing. Stir well. You can serve right away. Or, cover with plastic wrap and pop it into the fridge until ready to serve! Enjoy!
