Patti's Garden Fest Macaroni Salad


Happy Tuesday folks. I hope everyone is doing well today.

Sitting on the back porch this morning with my coffee required

shoes and a hoodie. As much as I hate to admit it, (because I’m

“Team Summer”), the brisk morning was quite invigorating.

And made the coffee taste just a bit better. But trust me, there

was no pumpkin spice. My hypocrisy goes only so far.

My plan was to do a welcome to fall recipe this morning, but I

decided to wait jus another week or two more. There are still some veggies in my garden so today I am going to share one of my family’s favorite macaroni salad recipes. Lots of veggies and flavor in this recipe. I used a package of Patti’s Garden Fest Dip Mix for that extra tastiness they love. Just so you know, I do occasionally use a dip mix for a dip. But there is just so much more they can be used for.

Choose your favorite veggies. For this one I chose mini sweet peppers, celery, green onions, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and peas. I cook, rinse and drain my macaroni and pour it into a large bowl. Add my vegetables, mayo, sour cream and dip mix. Mix thoroughly and serve. Kept covered in the fridge, this can last about 3 days. But around my house it’s gone the next day. You can get Patti’s Garden Fest Dip Mix at Patti’s 1880’s Settlement. Or online @

I hope you enjoy this as much as my family does.

Til next time,
