Here's a yummy recipe my stepmom made up to go with charcoal-grilled hamburgers and hotdogs (which, by the way, were served with onions, tomatoes, and pickles lovingly sliced by hand, pretzel-bread buns, mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise, and ranch-flavored potato chips). As often happens with comfort-food recipes, it's missing all the measurements and proportions. It's the kind of music-to-your-mouth that every Mom has to learn to play by ear.
Whole Wheat Rotini (cooked and rinsed with cold water)
sliced green olives with pimentos
50/50 blend of mayo and white salad dressing
Mix the ingredients together. Add 1 can of drained canned peas and mix gently.
Seems simple, doesn't it? And yet it holds its own against the best burgers your Dad knows how to grill. Did you miss your parents' cookout on Memorial Day? Oh, ye bachelors! Weep for shame!
