    terirose22's Note:

    My mom's renowned macaroni salad, which is perfect as a light meal or served as a side dish. We affectionately dubbed this to be "Catholic" macaroni salad because it's perfect for those Fridays during Lent! This recipe makes a generous batch which works great for big potlucks, but scale down if you don't want as many leftovers.
