I never like it when I don't know where a recipe comes from and this is one of those recipes. I've collected many recipes over the years from various Amish cooks and most of the time I've been pretty good about keeping the recipe with the envelope it came in or the name/location matched with the recipe,but sometimes I have ones that just got filed away without either. This is one of those. I have no clue who sent it in to me. The handwriting is pretty, as is the case with many Amish authors, but beyond that I don't know where it came from. But since it is summer and picnic season I thought it seemed like too good of a recipe not to share. The recipe does not say whether you should refrigerate before serving or not. I say to do it, I think almost everything tastes better after the flavors have melded. So here it is, enjoy!
- 1 box medium shells
- 1½ green peppers
- 1 medium onion
- 2 tomatoes
- ½ pound boiled ham
- 1 /2 pound cooked salami
- 1 /2 pound pepperoni
- ½ pound provolone cheese
- ½ red wine vinegar
- ½ cup oil
- Salt and pepper
- Cook shells.
- Chop peppers, onion, tomatoes, meat and cheese into bite-sized pieces.
- Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
- Add oregano, salt, and pepper to taste
Great recipe, thanks for sharing! I see at the bottom of this recipe one for big mac dressing. Could you please share this? Thanks
Could you please post the Big Mac dressing that seemed to go with the recipe
Kevin, when I was in high school (late 60's) a friend's brother was in a car accident and was given the syrup of coca cola you mentioned to ease his nausea. I just looked online and you can still purchase it but it's simply called syrup of cola.
Kevin, I think I am older than you, but, yes as a kid growing up we did have a Coke syrup for belly aches and cramps, was given it many times, also on the recipe for today, at colorless baker, they sell a mixture just like yours to put on small pieces of bread as an appetizer, but does not have the noodles in it. It's very good. Thanks for your stories and recipients. Ruthie Sacks
I enjoy reading about your dieting, about your pretty daughter, and of course your website.
Just be your gracious self and ignore the negative comments. Remember, life is short and can't please EVERYONE!
God Bless you, your family and your website.
Sincerely, Martha Staton
Martha, thank you for your encouragement and everything you've done to support Amish365.com, means a lot - Kevin
This Hoagie salad sounds really good, but I would add some hot pepper flakes and a pinch of sugar.....and I think it needs to set in the fridge for a few hrs. or overnite before serving.....
Oooh, I like the idea of adding hot pepper flakes, Mona!
I just want to say Thank
