" You Bring the Macaroni Salad," Macaroni Salad

Whenever we go somewhere for a back yard BBQ, I am asked to bring my macaroni salad. I think the "secret" that makes this macaroni salad different from others is the mixture of miracle whip and mayo. You know, some people like mayo...some like miracle whip. This way, everybody is "half" pleased!! This is another one of my "throw together" recipes, so I have tried my best to give some type of measurements.

ingredients

directions

  • NOTE: The measurements on the miracle whip, mayonnaise, pickle juice and sugar can be adjusted to your taste.
  • Honestly, I never measure "exactly.".
  • Also, use as much or as little cheese as you would like.
  • Cook macaroni according to directions.
  • When draining, run cold water over to keep it from sticking together and to "chill" it.
  • Mix mayonnaise, miracle whip, onion, pickle juice and sugar together to make "sauce.".
  • After macaroni is completely drained, mix macaroni, "sauce", eggs and cheese until everything is coated and mixed well.
  • The longer it chills, the better it gets!

    I made this for my DGS's birthday party and it was a clear hit. I really liked the egg and the relish in this. You don't add much but you can taste them in there. Thank you for sharing with easy salad recipe with us that was a hit with my family.

    Wow! We loved this. I used all mayo (needed a little more) and used sweet pickle relish instead of juice. Will add this to my rotation.

    This is the recipe that I have been looking for. I love marcaroni salad but could never make it with just the right taste I like. I don't like all the green peppers or celery that most recipes have. I think the secret is the 1/2 mayo and 1/2 Miracle Whip. Thank you for posting!

    This really had no taste to it? Not what I was expecting.
