Dirty Mac Salad Recipe @pinch

Is a dirty martini your cocktail of choice? Then this pasta salad is going to become your favorite recipe! Onions and pepper give the creamy pasta a little bite and crunch. The dressing is a nice combination of flavors and gives the dish a different flavor than traditional recipes. In our opinion, the salty olives are the best part. Unusual and very tasty! This recipe was inspired by a dirty martini. I went searching for a mac salad recipe with green olives. Couldn't find one that sounded good. So I made one up myself.
