This salad was AWESOME! Every month my office has a birthday potluck and today was this months potluck day. I like to take my experiments to potluck, that way incase they didn't really turn out, we're not stuck eating them all at home. I actually went and pulled this off the table early so that we can have some with dinner tonight. I mixed everything together last night, but I next time I'll mix the dressing in the morning of. Last night when we tried it, I liked it better than I did this morning. I think the noodles absorbed too much of the liquid. It was still very good though. I also didn't put enough bacon in. I had only planned on making a half batch so I saved a half pound of bacon when we made breakfast the other day and then all of a sudden the full bag of macaroni was in the pot. I'm glad I made the full batch, but I wish I had planned the full pound of bacon to make it even yummier! Here's the recipe!
Bacon & Macaroni Salad
1 Pound Sliced Bacon
Cook bacon, drain, crumble and set aside. Cook pasta, drain and rinse with cold water.
Whisk the mayonnaise, sour cream, sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper in a large bowl until the sugar is dissolved. Add the bacon, pasta, tomato, cucumber, egg and celery. Gently fold until the salad is evenly covered with the dressing.
