Grandma’s Famous Noodle Salad Recipe
Every time I host a gathering, the phone calls start. “Is Grandma making her noodle salad?” That’s it! It goes quickly and is the most requested item. However, over the years I have wanted to health it up a bit. I found a way to get the same great flavor with a much better mix ingredient. Here’s Grandma’s Famous Noodle Salad Recipe.
Grandma’s Famous Noodle Salad Recipe has been perfected over the years. Originally she used a scary slaw mix and I personally wouldn’t consume it. However, once I discovered this secret ingredient…no one, even Grandma, can tell the difference! My kids can’t get enough and party guests love it. It has a creamy consistency, a little tang, just enough sweetness and saltiness. I healthed the recipe up a bit by using organic ingredients, however you can go standard too.
This is a sponsored post but the opinions here are my own.
Ingredients you’ll need:
- 1lb Small Shells (pasta)
- 1 cup chopped celery
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1/2 cup chopped olives
- Black canned olives or green
- 1/2 cup chopped sweet gherkins
- 2 hard boiled eggs peeled
- 12 oz Chosen Foods Coconut Oil Mayo
- Paprika for garnishment (optional)
Grandma’s Famous Noodle Salad Recipe Instructions.
First boil the shells and strain when aldente. Let noodles cool to warm and add in 1/2 of the Chosen Foods coconut oil mayo. Mix gently allow to sit. Refrigerate 2-3 hours, or until mayo appears to have absorbed. Next, add chopped celery, onion, olives and sweet gherkins. Add a splash of the sweet gherkin juice from the jar. Add an additional 1/4 of the Chosen Foods coconut oil mayo and mix gently until well combined.
Next, chop up the hard boiled eggs and mix through, being careful to avoid breaking them apart. Save a slice for garnishment, or mix throughout. Place noodle salad in decorative bowl and dust with paprika. Ideally, the noodle salad sits overnight in the refrigerator, but can be served right away.
For picky eaters, who don’t like to “see things” in their food. Puree the onion and celery in a food processor to get the same flavor while reducing the visibility of the vegetables.
