Fiery Macaroni Salad + Giveaway! {CLOSED}



 

I love Summer because we get to spend a lot of time with friends at BBQ's.  All of these events give me a chance to try out new recipes that I find on Pinterest.  Pasta salad is one of my go-to dishes for Summer BBQ's because it does not require much prep and you can customize it with any ingredients. Since the 4th of July is coming up, I wanted to try a twist on a standard macaroni salad, giving it a kick using Mezzetta peppers ...like fireworks in your mouth!



At my house, we like adding Mezzetta peppers to most of our dishes because it spices up any recipe. Did you know Mezzetta is the #1 jarred pepper in the US?  They offer a variety of products that will bring your dish to life, because the peppers are harvested at the peak of ripeness for the boldest flavor.  Get grilling with my recipe for Fiery Macaroni Salad using Mezzetta peppers and read on to see how you can win your own Summer Entertaining Kit, including a Weber Spirit E-310 gas grill!

Fiery Macaroni Salad

Ingredients:


Cook your noodles till they are just softened; if you over-cook them then your salad will be mushy (not good!)  Drain and transfer to your serving bowl.



Mix in the ranch, sour cream, and shredded cheese until the cheese is melted in the pasta.


Add in the peppers and season with salt and pepper to taste.  Serve at room temperature or chilled.



This kicked-up salad pairs perfectly with grilled hotdogs, which I like to smother with Mezzetta sliced mild pepper rings.



Mezzetta wants to get you ready for your next Summer BBQ with their Bold, Bright Summer Giveaway!  Enter by July 15th and you might be one of the 11 lucky winners!

  5. There are some ingredients that make me soley think of Summer and peppers are one of them! Although, I'm a baby when it comes to spicy things, perhaps one day I will go outside my comfort zone and eat them! Great combo though adding them to a macaroni salad - that's a BBQ favorite! Also, thanks for sharing about the giveaway - I would love a grill :)
