green bell pepper, chopped
Ranch-style salad dressing
This is a good recipe, I doubled it and I found that I did not have the ranch dressing but I had the dry ranch dressing mix and sprinkled it on, and I added a bit more mayo, and a tsp of milk and it was great! Second time, I added some extra vegtables, like small broccoli flowrettes(just the tiny ends) and defrosted frozen english peas.Yummy! This is a keeper recipe, thnks for sharing.
I liked it a lot and it was quick and easy to make. I think it would be better with a little more ingredience added in; it was just a little plain.
Very tasty recipe, a hit at family functions.
This is a good starting point, but the recipe as is needs some adjustment. I found that the macaroni required more mayo/dressing that was called for to be of the right consistency. Also, rather than using regular onion which overwhelms the dish, green onions or chives would be a better choice. My personal preference is to leave the onions out completely, and add garlic powder, dill, and crumbled bacon and use three cheese ranch as the dressing of choice. Other good toss-ins would be: mustard, pickle relish, cubed ham, peas, diced turkey or chicken, snow peas, sesame seeds, cherry tomatoes, or celery.
I made this last night and it was really good. The Ranch dressing really adds
some zip. An added can of tuna also works really well with this recipe.
My husband love's it. And it was a hit at my job. And i like it to. And is very easy to fix.
My family really loved the tangy flavor the ranch dressing gave this recipe. I added onions and bacon bits for an extra zing.
love it, :)
