Alfredo & more

So there’s this salad I make that’s so yummy, so good, you really won’t believe it.   You surely won’t believe what’s in it!

It shouldn’t be called salad though…. it’s salad’s naughty cousin … the pasta salad.

Rich and decadent, creamy and delicious, it’s my Alfredo Salad.

My cousin just asked for the recipe and I shared it.  Afterwards, it occurred to me to share it here with you fine folks as well.

If you follow my directions, I promise it will turn out just fine.


MJ’s Alfredo Salad:

  • 1 jar of mayo ( you won’t use the whole jar )
  • 1 pkg fettuccine noodles cooked and cooled
  • 1 large can of Parmesan
  • 1/2 pkg frozen kernel corn
  • garlic seasoning

Boil noodles & let cool. Coat cooled noodles with enough mayo to coat but not drown the noodles.  Toss liberally with Parmesan cheese, sprinkle in garlic seasoning to taste and add the corn last.

That’s it.

P.S. Unless I’m baking, I don’t measure, I cook by “feel.”  You will not use all of the mayo but you will use most of the parm.

P.P. S.S. Great if made a day ahead but best if made and served the same day.

  1. I bet you bring the best food to BBQs!

    • How’d you know? 😉

      This recipe is adapted from a favorite dish at the “Soup or Salad” station in Houston, TX. Yum! Not low calorie or Dukan-friendly but boy the crowd sure goes for it 🙂 MJ

  2. Sounds yummy. I would never have thought to add corn. But pasta, parm, mayo…all good! I’ll have to give it a try! ~ Sheila

  3. We cook by feel too, though I call it “cooking by smell”. 🙂
    On a separate note: Do you have any idea why out here in the East/Mid-West they call it “Hellmans” and out West it’s “Bestfoods” mayo? Same logo and everything. I know, such deep questions for so late in the morning! 😉

    • I hear ya, D …. and no, I don’t know why they are branded differently … must be a regional “thing.”
      Cheers to you!

  4. This looks so good and super easy! Will need to try it very soon. Thanks!

  5. Love your picture recipe. Keeps things “easy peasy” as you say. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you, I love easy recipes. Measuring is for baking (to me anyways) and that only happens every once in a while 🙂 MJ

  6. Wow, that looks totally yummy! But do you really use that whole large jar of mayo? Lordy–my kind of salad, for sure!
    Sorry to have been away all last week. Visiting bloggers and freak summer storms to blame. I’ve missed your posts, MJ!

    • hi there .. no you won’t use the whole jar .. a coupla good heaping tablespoons full though. I just saw your summer storm/visit post – crazy! Take care my friend! MJ
