Bacon & Tomato Macaroni Salad

"Inspired by another macaroni salad and some nudging from my sister, this is what I came up with. :)* The cook time on this is boiling the macaroni and frying up the bacon, which I did simultaneously ;)"

directions

  • Mix cooked macaroni, bacon, onion, celery, cucumber and tomato.
  • Toss with mayonnaise.
  • Add balsamic vinegar. Toss to coat.
  • You could mix the mayo and vinegar first, then put it on , it would ensure even distribution of the vinegar I guess! :).

    I omitted the celery and used extra cucumber. I also used 1/2 cup of mayo. This is great!!

    My daughter ate all her veggies and added more the next night! I did use cider vinegar instead of balsamic and added about a half cup of shredded cheddar cheese--nice addition with the tomatoes and bacon. (I love BLT sandwiches with chedddar on them.) We'll definitely do this one again--it is a meal by itself, even! Thanks for posting!

    Very good! I used tiny shells instead of macaroni, and didn't measure the veggies exactly. I'll definitely be making this again soon.

    This was a very good and simple salad. I didn't measure all of the ingredients exactly, and instead just stirred them in to our own tastes. I did add diced cucumbers to the mix and liked their texture and flavor. This is a great summer time salad.

    I didn't add the tomatoes, or onions. Quick and easy to put together. Love the dressing. Great salad!
