  • 1 (16 ounce) package elbow macaroni

  • 6 hard-cooked large eggs, diced

  • ½ cup diced onion

  • ½ cup diced celery

  • ½ cup diced green bell pepper

  • 2 cups mayonnaise

  • 1 cup milk

  • ½ cup sweet pickle relish

  • cup prepared honey mustard

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook macaroni in boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and rinse macaroni under cold water until chilled.

  2. Transfer chilled macaroni to a large serving bowl. Add hard-cooked eggs, onion, celery, and bell pepper; toss until salad is well combined.

  3. Whisk together mayonnaise, milk, pickle relish, and honey mustard in a medium bowl until combined; pour over salad and stir to coat. Season with sea salt and black pepper.


You can cut back the fat by substituting fat-free mayo, whole wheat noodles, skim milk, and only using cooked egg whites.
