Macaroni Salad for a Crowd


Basic and super easy macaroni salad that I make for family gatherings. I make mine with dill relish but you could change it if you prefer the sweet. Looks good and tastes even better the next day. The more you make it, the quicker you will get. Can be served right away, or make it ahead of time and keep it in the fridge.

  • 1 (16 ounce) package uncooked macaroni

  • 8 hard-cooked eggs, grated

  • 1 medium red onion, finely chopped

  • 1 (6 ounce) can black olives, drained and chopped

  • 1 (10 ounce) jar dill pickle relish, partially drained

  • ½ cup mayonnaise, or as needed

  • 1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard, or to taste

  • salt and black pepper to taste

  • 4 hard-cooked eggs, sliced

  • paprika to taste


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Place macaroni in the pot, cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain.

  2. Toss cooked pasta, grated eggs, onion, olives, and relish with some of the liquid in a large bowl. Mix in mayonnaise and mustard, increasing the amount of mayonnaise as desired. Season with salt and pepper. Top with sliced eggs, and sprinkle with paprika to serve.
