This is a great side dish to make - especially during the summer. It's very refreshing! Beware: it makes a LOT...which is good because it is quite delicious!
1 box (16 oz.) "salad macaroni" (although you can use any type of pasta)
3/4 C. chopped celery
1 small can pineapple tidbits
1 small can sliced black olives
1 cup cubed colby cheese
1 small package (2 oz.) slivered almonds (toasted)
3/4 C. mayo
1. Cook the pasta, drain and rinse in cold water.
2. Pour the juice from the pineapple tidbits into a small bowl. Mix juice with 3/4 cup mayonnaise. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl, combine pasta, pineapple tidbits, black olives, colby cheese and almonds.
4. Pour mayo/juice mixture over pasta. Stir well.
*You may add milk to reach desired consistency.
