If you have followed this blog, you may remember my brother-in-law's visit a couple years ago and our "Priceless" dinner that we experienced, as indicated in my blog post and photo below.
Well I am very happy and proud to report that during his most recent visit with us a couple weeks ago, we had a very successful bbq night and "Ribdemption".
Perhaps it was our new rib recipe from Traeger or the fact that I kept my husband and his brother more focused this time and stay on point with the various steps to smoking these beauties.
Whatever the case may be, they were beyond amazing and one of the best dinners we have ever had. I tried out a new side dish with our BLT Macaroni Salad. It was devoured by all and definitely a keeper for any future BBQ or pot luck!!
BLT Macaroni Salad
1 (16 oz) package macaroni, cooked according to directions, rinsed and cooled
1-1/4 cup celery, diced
5 green onions, finely chopped
2 large tomatoes, diced
1-1/4 cup Best Foods Olive Oil Mayonnaise
5 tsp. white vinegar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1 (4 ounce) container blue cheese crumbles
1 pound bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
In a large bowl, combine the cooked macaroni, celery, onions, tomatoes and blue cheese. In a separate bowl, combine and whisk the remaining ingredients (except bacon). Pour over macaroni mixture, tossing to coat well. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours. Just before serving, sprinkle with bacon crumbles.
