Macaroni pasta mixed with black olives, celery, spring onion, sweet pickle and seasoning in a creamy mustard and mayonnaise dressing. The perfect macaroni salad for a summer picnic or barbecue.
EXCELLENT! Just what I wanted: a basic mac salad recipe. I would recommend mixing the mayo and mustard together and then slowly adding to the macaroni, to your taste (I am very particular about the amount of dressing on anything). I used the leftover mixture for deviled eggs and my mac salad was perfectly dressed. This is my new, official mac salad recipe! - 24 May 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Grand Slam Mama! After reading the reviews, the only changes I made were decrease the mustard to 1/4 cup, add 4 Tbl apple cider vinegar with 2 Tbl sugar,and a tsp of mustard powder, mixed in 5 chopped hard boiled eggs and 3 sliced eggs on top of salad. In my opinion, it really does need all 3 cups of mayo--I started with 2 cups and then had to add the third. I rinsed and cooled the noodles before adding to the dressing. I will keep this recipe forever. I am taking it to a saint paddy's potluck tomorrow. Yo mama knew her stuff! - 16 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Not a single thing changed, and it was fantastic! I had never made Macaroni Salad before but found myself with a half a package cooked after making Mac n Cheese the night before. This turned out wonderful, with a nice kick to it. No weird ingredients -- all staples. Every time I had tasted Mac Salad before, it had no appeal because it was so bland -- this I (and my co-workers) loved. My partner does not care for mustard, so it wasn't a fave of his, but he was the *only* one to say so. *Everyone* else -- about 5 people -- loved it! This is the recipe you've been looking for. It will be in my cookbook for years! - 19 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
