This is a really tasty, yet simple version of macaroni salad. My husband really enjoys eating mac salad but I don't make it often since I don't always have the ingredients (for my regular recipe) on hand. I'm really glad I tried this one because I think it's even better than my more complicated recipe and it's so easy to prepare! Next time I will use a little less onion and maybe one less boiled egg. Thanks for posting this recipe as it will now be my "go to" macaroni salad.

This is how my mama used to make her macaroni salad, and it brought back sweet memories for me. With the addition of the hot sauce it gives it so much flavor! My family loved it when I prepared it for our barbecue with neighbors for Memorial Day weekend. Around here we say Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmy! Cindy
