  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  2. Combine the macaroni, mayonnaise, milk, and carrot in a large bowl; mix until macaroni is well coated. Add more mayonnaise for a wetter consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or up to overnight.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Do not use low-fat or fat-free mayonnaise and milk. It makes the dressing too runny.

Ridiculously easy macaroni salad! We all loved it, made exactly as written.

We live in Hawaii and I thought this would be a nice side on burger night. Unfortunately it was not a hit, no flavor. My boys generally destroy anything with noodles and they refused to eat this.
