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.
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.
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!
