Grandmothers Are The Heart Of The Family
My grandmother was more like a second mom to me. She taught me how to wear make-up, she bought me my first bra and she let me cry on her shoulder when I had my first heartbreak.
She had a small coop with a few chickens and when we were visiting, my sister and I were allowed to gather the eggs.
Deviled Egg Macaroni Pasta Salad Recipe
One of my favorite snacks would be anything with hard-boiled eggs. We would eat them plain or Gram would make her delicious deviled eggs.
My dad loved her pasta salad recipes, which were a must have at every picnic, BBQ or even Sunday dinner.
A Dish To Be Passed Down Through Generations
We will make a batch with some fried chicken and take it to a new family in the neighborhood or a family with a new baby.
Healthy Can Still Be Delicious
If you are looking for a healthier side dish, you can adapt this recipe. All you need to do is use a lower fat or fat-free mayonnaise. You can also use a whole wheat or a gluten-free pasta.
Because you get the flavors of the eggs, the mustard, the relish and the onion, you cannot tell the difference with the lower fat mayonnaise.
