Jalapeno Popper Macaroni Salad #lunch #dinner

Ideal for any social affair, this macaroni serving of mixed greens has all the incredible kind of a jalapeño popper… jalapeños, cheddar, bacon, and rich dressing!

This is one macaroni serving of mixed greens that is FAR from exhausting… velvety and marginally hot, similar to your most loved jalapeño popper canapé! Carry this to your next grill, and get ready to have everybody requesting the formula!

The dressing is cool and velvety, with no sweetness, only a little kick of garlic powder and some salt and pepper. It's a three section dressing with mayo, acrid cream, and a touch of cream cheddar (for that exemplary jalapeño popper flavor). Like most cool plates of mixed greens, the more it sits, the better it gets, so don't hesitate to make this up multi day early. Simply spare a touch of the dressing and hurl it together before serving to spruce it up a bit.

Jalapeno Popper Macaroni Salad #lunch #dinner #pasta #salad #brunch

  • 1 lb dried elbow macaroni pasta
  • 1 cup canned jalapeños, chopped I prefer the mild version (can substitute with fresh chopped jalapeños as well)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, cubed small (or shredded) (monterey jack or Colby jack are good as well)
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (I like to use the canola oil mayo for a less calorie dressing)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 Tbsp cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice fresh is best
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • generous pinch of black pepper
  • fresh parsley, minced for garnish (optional)

  1. Bring large pot of water to a boil, add generous pinch of salt and boil pasta per package directions.  Drain, and rinse pasta with cold water until cooled.
  2. To a small mixing bowl, add mayo, sour cream, cream cheese, lemon juice, salt, garlic powder and black pepper and whisk until smooth and creamy.
  3. To a large mixing or serving bowl, add cooked and cooled pasta, jalapeños, cheese, and most of the bacon.  Pour dressing over pasta and toss to combine.  
  4. Sprinkle with remaining bacon, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow flavors to fully combine.
  5. Serve cold.
