How to Make Macaroni Salad

Classic macaroni salad is the perfect side dish for picnics, barbeques, and summer gatherings. We’ll show you how to make a creamy macaroni salad using elbow macaroni, a generous amount of mayonnaise, some tangy Dijon, and a bit of vinegar, plus red onions, thinly sliced celery, some peppers, salt, and a little bit of sugar. Make it in advance to let the flavors blend together before unveiling it at your next barbeque!

Please print recipe.

If you chill the pasta thoroughly before you add the rest of the ingredients, it will not absorb as much of the mayo.

Needs more mayo. As it sits the macaroni will absorb the mayo. Also good with some sweet pickle relish.
