This is a recipe I like to make often. I make it for many events - teacher luncheons, block parties, holidays, and just because...
It is very easy to make. Here is what you'll need:
Any brands will do. First I cook 1 pound of thin spaghetti (vermicelli will work too):
While that's on the stove, I chop 1 cup green peppers:
2 cups celery:
And 3/4 cup onion:
I set those ingredients aside. Then, I drain the pasta and rinse with cold water:
Toss that in a bowl and add 1 teaspoon accent
1 tablespoon season salt
3 tablespoon lemon juice
4 tablespoon vegetable oil
Next add the chopped green peppers, celery, and onion:
Finally, add 1 1/2 cups of mayonnaise and mix:
By the way, I use my hands to mix it all together - it's the only way. You just gotta dive in...
There are a couple of other ingredients that I sometimes add - diced pimento (1 can) or sliced black olives (1 small can). It's delicious either way. It's also one of those dishes that is actually better the next day - which is why it's so great to make for parties. You can make it the day before! And doesn't it look pretty in that cute green bowl? I picked that up at Home Goods for $1 on clearance!
So here's the recipe:
1 pound of thin spaghetti (or vermicelli). Cook, drain, and rinse.
1 cup chopped green pepper
3/4 cup chopped onion
2 cup chopped celery
1 tsp accent
1 tbsp season salt
3 tbsp lemon juice
4 tbsp vegetable oil
1 1/2 cup mayonnaise
4 oz can diced pimento (optional)
1 small can sliced black olives (optional)
Mix and refrigerate.
