This is the plain old fashioned macaroni salad my grandma used to make, which is still my sister Cathy's favorite.

Simple and quick to put together. This is what I think of as a classic tuna macaroni salad. No frills or anything fancy; just yummy. I used fresh onions in place of the onion flakes but that's all I changed. Thanx for sharing!
