Old Fashioned Macaroni Salad Recipe

    This macaroni salad recipe is one everyone seems to love. I always get tons of compliments on this dish and requests to bring it to every event I attend.  It has an overall pleasing taste.

  • 4 c. elbow macaroni, uncooked
  • 1 c. mayonnaise
  • ¼ c. grated carrot
  • 3 hardboiled eggs, chopped
  • 3 green onions, chopped (I used both the white and green parts)
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 T. dill pickle relish
  • 2 T. distilled white vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 2 T. yellow mustard
  • 2 T. sugar
  • 1 T. minced onion
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.  Add in the macaroni and cook until the macaroni is al dente. Drain, rinse and place back into the pot. 

In a large bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, relish, vinegar, mustard, sugar, salt and pepper. Gently fold in the carrots, eggs, green onions, celery, and minced onion. Pour in the macaroni and stir to coat the macaroni.  Refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours before serving.

Serves 8 with each serving having roughly 60 carbs.

Macaroni salad can be eaten on its own but we love to serve it with grilled cheese and turkeysandwiches, ham & ranch pinwheels or Dr. Pepper BBQ chicken sandwiches. What do you like to serve with macaroni salad?
