The Eat Food NOT Money Cookbook

Old fashioned macaroni and ham salad

I remember this dish mainly from country funerals when all the ladies would make something and bring it to the hall for after the ceremony. It’s very simple and delicious!

What you’ll need:

1 1/2 c. cooked macaroni noodles, cooled
1 c. diced cooked ham
1/2 c. ground pickles (sweet or dill, whichever you prefer)
1 can pimentos, chopped
1 c. mayonnaise

Mix all together well and chill for at least 30 minutes before serving. Serves 4.

elbow macaroni – $1.75
cooked ham – $2.12/lb
pickles – $2.12/jar
pimento – $3.00
mayonnaise – $2.50
Total – $6.62
