I was hesitant about posting this recipe - it's the macaroni salad I grew up with, and pretty basic. But it is so darned good that I decided to go ahead.
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons vinegar
- 1 tablespoon mustard
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄2 lb macaroni, cooked and drained
- 1 cup sliced celery
- 1⁄2 cup chopped green pepper
- 1⁄2 cup chopped red pepper
- 1⁄2 cup chopped green onion
- Combine dressing ingredients.
- Stir into remaining ingredients.
- Cover and chill.
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS salad! Not too much mayonnaise, lovely crunchy veggies and the dressing is perfect. It's even better the next day. The first time I made this I ate it for lunch for 3 straight days. Never got tired of it. Made it again tonight for tomorrow's company potluck so decided to give a thumbs up to the poster while I was here. Thanks for what has turned out to be my favorite macaroni salad and I am a huge macaroni salad fan.
perfect no nonsense macaroni salad recipe...I've made it twice now - each time doubling it since I had potlucks each time...one for them, one for us. today I added leftover ham - also nice (what isn't good with ham added? :)). I like that it has green onion and not regular. makes the whole thing just great and very hometown summery. Thanks for posting!
Very good. Made EXACTLY like recipe and was great. I really hate it when some people deviate from the recipe and then give it a low rating. Really p***** me off.
