Creamy Bell Pepper and Macaroni Salad Recipe

This creamy macaroni salad recipe features bell pepper and corn, as well as eggs and macaroni. The dressing is homemade and delicious. The sour cream and mayonnaise gives it a smooth, creamy texture and the garlic, red wine vinegar and other ingredients add piquancy and flavor.

This mouthwatering macaroni salad recipe is great for any occasion and the fact that it is so easy to make means it might become a regular recipe in your household. If you are in a real rush, you can use ranch dressing (or your favorite creamy dressing) rather than making your own. Blue cheese dressing would also be nice with this macaroni salad recipe. You do not have to follow the recipe word for word. If you have some leftover veggies to use up or you want to change the dressing, go for it.

Make this salad creative, exciting, and deliciously unique! If you are new to making pasta salad recipes, you will find this macaroni salad a breeze to put together. You can even use leftover macaroni to make it. It is best to start with cold macaroni, rather than macaroni which is still warm from the pot, so you can either spread it over a baking sheet in one layer to cool down or rinse it under cold running water. Rinsing it will cool it down right away, so that would be the fastest and probably easiest solution.
