    Sharon123's Note:

    I love a good macaroni salad! Recipe courtesy Guy Fieri, 2007, changed around just a bit! Macaroni salad was first found in early 20th century cookbooks.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 16 ounces macaroni noodles, 1/4-inch tube (or use small shell pasta-or try rainbow rotini pasta-whole wheat pasta is best)
    • 1 1/2-2 cups mayonnaise (The pasta absorbs the mayo, so use enough to make it "wet". )
    • 1/2-2 tablespoon minced garlic (2 tbls. is alot!)
    • 3 tablespoons yellow mustard
    • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar (or white vinegar)
    • 3/4 cup minced red onion (or green onions)
    • 3/4 cup minced Peppadew pepper (may substitue cubanelle or anaheim peppers-you might just use roasted red bell peppers)
    • 1/2 cup carrot, diced (can chop in the food processor)
    • 3/4 cup celery, diced (can chop in the food processor)
    • 1/4 cup diced roasted red pepper
    • 1/4 cup minced pepperoncini pepper
    • 1 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper, to taste


    1. 1
      In a medium saucepot, boil water and add salt. Add pasta, cook until al dente,about 8-9 minutes, and place into an ice water bath.
    2. 2
      In a medium mixing bowl add mayonnaise, garlic, mustard, and vinegar. Mix to combine and place in refrigerator to keep chilled while pasta cools. To cool quickly, spread pasta on a baking sheet and place in refrigerator for about 20 minutes, or till cool.
    3. 3
      When pasta is cool, mix in mayonnaise mixture and all vegetables. Mix thoroughly, season with salt and pepper. Place into refrigerator and chill for 1 hour for the flavors to combine. This is even better the next day!

      I was looking for something different from the same old same old mac salad, when I ran across this! I did not have the peppadew pepper, so I omitted it and the roasted red pepper. We thought it was fabulous and really like the kick of the pepperoncini. Like you said, when I first mixed the mayo mixture with the pasta it seemed quite wet, but after it is refrigerated the pasta will absorb a lot of it. Will be making this recipe again!
