Music Selection: Jacob Lee – I Belong To You

Ingredients:

6 – 8 cups cooked pasta (macaroni, radiatore, fusilli) – at room temperature

1 cup cooked ham, cubed

1 cup cheddar cheese (old), cubed

1 green onion, diced

½ red pepper, diced

2 stalks celery, diced

10 cherry tomatoes, quartered

1 ½ – 2 cups mayonnaise (more if your pasta is dry)

1 ½ tsp smoked paprika

(optional) 1 tsp dried dill

1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

Salt/pepper to taste

Directions:

In large bowl, mix your pasta gently with green onion, red pepper, celery, ham, and tomatoes.

Mix gently. Add the mayonnaise, paprika and apple cider vinegar. Mix. Salt/pepper to taste. Let set for a few hours in the fridge (covered) so the flavours blend.

Just before you serve, taste it to see if it needs a little extra mayonnaise or paprika. Top with an extra shake of smoked paprika and/or dill.

Enjoy with steak, burgers, BBQ chicken…. goes with well with … a party
