    You know, that's my new fave Saturday afternoon cooking program. Yesterday
    here (Chicago) they had the beer can chicken show and to accompany it they
    made a pasta salad. I like the show because first off they tell you how
    "most" people make stuff and why it sucks, then go step - by - step to show
    you how to make a great dish, in this case a pasta salad with pesto. The
    show that followed was about making some Beef Burgundy or whatever in a
    crockpot, they started out by showing that many simply dump ingredients in
    and you end up with a boiled and oily mess...

    I learned something, specifically about how to add pesto to a pasta salad,
    and how to thicken crock pot stuff with IIRC tapioca...

    Does anyone have their cookbook? I'm considering getting it...

    I have the Family cookbook, I really like it. Maybe other people
    have different America's Test Kitchen cookbooks they like as well
    or better.

    They have a bunch of different cookbooks, and they're all nice, IMO.
    In addition to the companion cookbooks for the various seasons, there
    are some called The Best Recipe and The Best Light Recipe (I have that
    one)... all are well put together.

    I'm a big fan of the show for all the reasons you list... they explain
    not just why they do what they do but why other things didn't work
    well. I also used to subscribe to their web sites and to Cooks
    Magazine, but I've been so busy lately that I don't have time to read
    them. Both have in-depth explanations of a lot of things that are
    gone over quickly in the show.

    All macaroni salad is is a pint or so of mayo (or miracle whip if you
    like it sweet), a tablespoon of finely chopped yellow onion and a
    tablespoon or so of regular old yellow mustard added to 16 ounces of
    cooked macaroni. There are a million variations and ways to rev it up
    but that's the basic, no frills article. BTW, if you're going to make
    it a day ahead of time, you may need to add more mayo and mustard
    before serving, as the macaroni tends to absorb a lot of the stuff
    around it during the night and may lose some moisture and flavor.

    Cook macaroni. Add mince onion, grated carrot, and diced bell pepper to
    taste. Toss with enough mayo to moisten, and a little bit of celery
    seed, salt, and pepper.

    It always goes quickly at my parties.

    I never add sugar or Miracle Whip (which is too sweet for me) to macaroni
    salad. Although I have to admit that I sometimes add a small amount of
    pickle relish, it doesn't add much sweetness.

    My usual additions are finely minced scallion, chopped celery, chopped
    fresh parsley, celery seed, grated carrot, sometimes finly diced cucumber,
    sometimes pickle relish, sometimes some dill weed, and sometimes chopped
    stuffed olives. For the dressing, I whisk together some mayo, a small
    amount of mustard, a dash of cider vinegar, and a bit of cream.

    A really plain macaroni salad is not particularly appetizing to me.

    Okay, here's the recipe from their website. The hints are in the
    comments, leave the macaroni a little moist before adding the
    other ingredients so it doesn't soak up all the mayo, and use a
    little warm water to perk it up the next day. Beats continually
    adding more mayo the way I have.

    Cool and Creamy Macaroni Salad
    from the Episode: Rainy Day BBQ Pork Chops


    Don’t drain the macaroni too well before adding the other ingredients--a
    little extra moisture will keep the salad from drying out. If you’ve made
    the salad ahead of time, simply stir in a little warm water to loosen the
    texture.

    Serves 8 to 10 Table salt
    1 pound elbow macaroni
    1/2 small red onion , minced
    1 rib celery , minced
    1/4 cup minced fresh parsley leaves
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
    Pinch cayenne pepper
    1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
    Ground black pepper

    1. Bring 4 quarts water to boil in large pot. Add 1 tablespoon salt and
    macaroni and cook until nearly tender, about 5 minutes. Drain in colander
    and rinse with cold water until cool, then drain briefly so that macaroni
    remains moist. Transfer to large bowl.

    2. Stir in onion, celery, parsley, lemon juice, mustard, garlic powder, and
    cayenne, and let sit until flavors are absorbed, about 2 minutes. Add
    mayonnaise and let sit until salad texture is no longer watery, 5 to 10
    minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve. (The salad can be
    covered and refrigerated for up to 2 days. Check consistency and seasonings
    before serving.)

    There are so many zillions of variations for this one that you have to
    give us a little help before we can advise. Do you find mayonnaise
    tasty, or are you more of a vinaigrette sort? Of the macaroni salads
    you've tried, do you like more macaroni or more vegetables? What do you
    think of the macaroni salad you've gotten from the deli section of the
    supermarket, love it or hate it? Why? How are you in general with salt
    and sugar? It's hard to answer a question that asks for something that
    tastes good. We all have different opinions on that.

    Good questions. "Simple but tasty" doesn't say much.

    A dressing for cold pasta that has grown in popularity is oil, soy
    sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, honey and peanut butter (optionally,
    minced garlic and grated ginger and maybe red pepper flakes). -

    What do you want to bet that we never hear from the original poster
    again. People who aren't articulate or expressive the first time rarely
    are on the 2nd go. In other words, if s/he couldn't think of the
    answers to those questions when first posting, s/he won't think of the
    answers when asked directly.


    I didn't think of the Asian slant to macaroni salad, but it's a good
    thought. Use scallions and snow peas for the vegetables.

    When I make a macaroni salad, it really ends up being more of an
    "antipasto flavored salad" because of the various veggies I put in
    (celery, onion, halved cherry tomatoes,lots of black and spanish olives,
    pepperocini) as well as diced salami/pepperoni and provolone. Dressed in
    an oil and vinegar (and various other things) dressing.

    Here is what I know about Macaroni salad: I like it mayo-based with a bit of
    vinegar for tang, very small celery pieces, and just a little shredded
    cheddar cheese.

    My family loves the recipe below. I copied and pasted it from the
    Hellmann's web site, but I made a couple of adjustments so that it's the
    original recipe I got from their jar many years ago.

    Karen

    CLASSIC MACARONI SALAD
    (adapted from
    http://www.hellmanns.com/recipe_deta...2211&version=1)

    Servings: 5
    Preparation Time: 5 minutes
    Cook Time: 20 minutes
    :
    8 ounces elbow macaroni (about 1-3/4 cups, uncooked)
    1 cup Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
    2 Tbsp. vinegar (I use 2T juice from a jar of sweet pickles for a less
    vinegary flavor)
    1 Tbsp. prepared mustard (I use Gulden's Spicy Brown mustard)
    1 tsp. sugar
    1 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
    1 cup thinly sliced celery (chopped celery also works well)
    1 cup chopped green or red bell pepper (optional)
    1/4 cup chopped onion

    Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain and rinse with cold
    water until completely cool.
    Combine Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, sugar,
    salt and pepper in large bowl. Stir in macaroni, celery, green pepper, and
    onion. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

    The guy is a bit of a moron but the show is OK, no commercial
    interruptions.

    Saw today's show about how to make well done hamburgers, with a bread/milk
    addition. No telling if they were or not. Naturally they thumbs up'd the
    finished product.

    I'd've used buffalo myself to bloody rare, without incident.

    I wouldn't fault them for naked burgers. Flavor of meat is everything.

    If I wasn't "memory deficient," I'd've remembered the recommended the
    Timerock? Timberook? BEGAN with "T" sharp cheddar cheese?! Dammit!!!
