German Pasta Salad

When you're looking for something different for a picnic or family gathering, this German version of the venerable pasta salad is my suggestion.  Don't scrimp on the paprika and I suggest bringing a can along so people at the bottom of the bowl don't get left out.

  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 Pound Elbow Macaroni
  • 1 Large Dill Pickle
  • 1 Ring of Bologna or Sausage
  • 3 Large Tomatoes
  • 3 Sweet Apples (e.g. Gala or Janagold)
  • 1 Cup Natural, Plain Yogurt (not fat free)
  • ½ Cup Mayonnaise
  • Lemon Juice (about ½ a lemon)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Paprika
  • Place eggs in a small saucepan, add water to cover the eggs, bring to a boil, turn off the heat, cover for 10 minutes, then rinse and cool.
  • Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil, add salt to taste, add the elbow macaroni and cook per its instructions. Strain in a colander, let cool and transfer to a large serving dish.
  • Cut up pickles, bologna, eggs, tomatoes and apples into size bite pieces and add to pasta.
  • Whisk together the yogurt and the mayonnaise, add lemon juice (a little at a time to prevent it from getting too bitter), flavor with salt, pepper and paprika.
  • Pour over pasta and stir it until well mixed together.
