Trying To Figure Out The Right Proportioning Of Zippy’s Mac Salad Recipe - Page 2

ZIPPY'S MAC SALAD RECIPE

1/4 lb Elbow Macaroni, cooked past al dente, to "fat" noodle, soft

1/2 C Best Foods Mayonnaise (or Hellmann's if you're in the East, no substitution)

1/2 Tbsp prepared Mustard (I used Dijon 'cause that's what I had in the 'fridge)

1 Tbsp White Onion, finely grated, juice and pulp (I used a microplane)

2 Tbsp Carrot, finely grated

2 Tbsp Celery, finely diced

Salt and Pepper to taste (I used about 1/8 tsp of each)

Combine all ingredients but the Macaroni in a large mixing bowl.

Prepare the pasta as directed. Test the pasta to make sure that it is past al dente, nice and soft but not falling apart. Drain well. Toss gently with the dressing and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.

I had some leftover cooked macaroni in the fridge, and being that I ate the first batch in nothing flat, I decided to see if putting that together with the dressing while cold would work.  It does not!  Chef Talk Member berndy sent me a very nice comment that they would combine the ingredients while the pasta was warm and I neglected to mention that.  Yes berndy, you are absolutely right and I just assumed that that was implied but it should be noted in the receipt, mix while macaroni is still a bit warm.

I gotta' tell you guys this...

I emailed a copy of this recipe, along with the photos that I took of the finished product, to my Sister.

She immediately called me up (from her office) this morning and we were dancing on the phone together!!  My husband already thinks we're both nuts, so...

This is how excited people from Oahu, Hawaii get about food, HA!!!  Well, at least Zippy's Mac Salad...

Love Zippy's Mac Salad.  Wish I had a Chili Frank Plate w/ 2 scoops Mac Salad!

 

YUM!

 

Anyone in Cali, should definitely try Nalu's Island restaurant!  I think they have the Mac Salad recipe down!  The seared ahi plate was so ono!

Aloha Bruddah Hawk!

Welcome to Chef Talk, I hope to see you here often.

My husband and I moved to the middle of the desert about five years ago and I have been on a quest ever since to duplicate the foods from back home in the Islands.  (please insert Brother's Cuz singing 'at home in the islands') I’m working on Zippy’s Chili now.

That plate looks most ONO!!  I googled Nalu’s, next time we go by we will have to give it a try. 

That ‘seared Ahi’ looks more like a poke plate!

But Bruddah, were da rice?

I know I know, I wish I could've had rice, but I had to cut some carbs.
