This is the best macaroni salad around!! I grew up on this as a little girl with my grandma making this. It brings back old memories.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook and drain macaroni. Cool. Add eggs, celery, and onion. Mix salad dressing, mustard, vinegar, and sugar thoroughly, then add to macaroni mixture. Then served chilled its even better if made the night before!

Help! I accidentally put a little too much vinegar in this. Is there any opinions on how to get rid of that vinegar taste? Other then that, I love this recipe!

This is just the best macaroni salad! My husband doesn't like mayonnaise, mustard, or salad dressings, but he loves this salad. The blend of flavors are perfect. It's always a hit when I take it somewhere and someone always wants the recipe.

This is the closest I have come to my grandma's mac salad. I used mayo instead of salad dressing and no sugar. Thanks for getting me the closest I have come yet to her salad!
