Salmon Macaroni

With Christmas coming there are often pot-luck dinners we attend and so I have to make a salad and/or desert. This is an easy salad that can also be a main meal for the summer if you add all the vegetables. When adding the vegetables think about colour. Make sure the mayonnaise is a good quality one with a nice flavour.

There weren't enough peas in this salad!

2 cups of uncooked macaroni
1 ½ cups frozen peas
I dtsp olive oil
1 x 210gr can salmon
I spring onion, finely sliced.
1/3 cup mayonnaise

(optional extras) 1 large tomato, 1 each of yellow and orange bell pepper, 1 stick of celery – chop all about the size of a pea.

Cook the macaroni in boiling salted water for 12 minutes then add the frozen peas and cook for another 3 minutes or until the peas are coked.
Drain, toss in the olive oil and allow to cool.
Empty can of salmon into a bowl and mash so all the bones are crushed.
Add spring onion (and any other vegetables you may be using).
Mix together and add to the macaroni and peas.
Stir in the mayonnaise and chill before serving.

As a main meal you can serve this in lettuce leaves or on a 'bed' of mixed salad greens.
