Delicious macaroni salad that everyone loves! My grandma's recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Cook 2 cups of macaroni according to the directions on the package. I add about 1 teaspoon cooking oil and some salt to keep macaroni from sticking together.
  2. While the macaroni is cooking, in another pan hardboil 2 or 3 eggs (sometimes I just rinse the eggs and put them in with the macaroni).
  3. Drain the cooked macaroni, and put in large bowl.
  4. Peel the hard boiled eggs, chop them up and add to macaroni. Also add the onion, celery and pickles. To keep the macaroni sorta moist, I pour a little bit of the pickle juice in-- about a tablespoon.
  5. Mix in mustard, celery salt, pepper, and mayo. If it seems too dry, add more mayo until you like the mixture--not soppy but not dry. You will know!
  6. Chill before serving. Enjoy!

This turned out rather bland. After a day of in the refigerator, it had more flavor. I was looking forward to the B&B pickled in it, but the flavor of the pickles didn't come through for me. I add some pickle juice to the sauce. Next time I will add more pickle juice, more mustard and more pickles

Yummy, basic, crowd-pleasing macaroni salad. I used the 3 eggs and the 2 celery ribs. I liked the flavor from the b&b pickles. Since there was already celery in this, I used regular salt in place of celery salt. Thanx for sharing your gramma's recipe!
