Recipe by Lindas Busy Kitchen

Macaroni Salad is always good, especially in the summer with meats and fish cooked on the grill... This recipe is one with lots of flavor, and a little different than your average Macaroni Salad... It gets RAVE REVIEWS from all who try it! Why don't YOU!

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.
