Pea and Cheese Salad
2 cups dry macaroni, boiled and drained
2 cups frozen peas (10 oz box)
1 cup chopped celery (about 3 stalks)
1/2 cup minced onion
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup mayonnaise
Boil the macaroni in plenty of salted water. When it is tender, drain it
well, and rinse it in cold water, to cool it down. Put the frozen peas
in the colander first, and then pour the boiling water and macaroni over
the peas. This melts the peas, and cooks them just enough to be good in
While the macaroni is boiling, chop the celery and
onion and shred the cheese if necessary.
Combine all of the ingredients in a big bowl and mix
them very well. Transfer the mixture to a resealable container, or clean
glass jar. Chill until serving time.
Makes 8 side servings or 4 main servings.
