ingredients

directions

  • 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.
  • 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).
  • Drain the cooked macaroni, and put in large bowl.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Chill before serving. Enjoy!

    I used Coleslaw Dressing from the produce section refrigerated dressings. I also added grapes sliced in half and added diced chicken. Serve over Boston lettuce and sliced heirloom tomato wedges. The chicken I got ready cooked in my supermarket salad bar. Add walnuts if you like. Becomes a full summer dinner!

    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!
