Mom's Macaroni Salad

Mom's Macaroni Salad created by Parsley

My mom's macaroni salad recipe. I leave out the bell peppers because Hubby doesn't care for them, and I chop the onions very fine because I don't like biting into big pieces. I also recommend making extra dressing to add later. The macaroni will absorb the moisture as it sets, which could make the salad seem too dry.

  • Combine macaroni, dressing and your choice of add-ins in a large bowl (preferably one with a lid for storage) and mix thoroughly.

    Good macaroni salad. I used all the add-ins except the bell peppers. I also used coarse black pepper and paprika to sprinkle over top. It was very good, but not what I'd consider oustanding. I think it could use some other herbs and/or spices. Thanx for posting !

    This was good but it needs something. I left out the green pepper but used all the other add-ins. I think maybe I'll add some sweet pickles and/or olives to the rest. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
