I remember eating this Macaroni Salad at family gatherings and picnics growing up.  I still enjoy it at picnics and cookouts.  If I have a picnic or barbecue, my family loves what I call “Picnic Comfort Foods.”   These recipes include Potato Salad, Baked Beans, Cole Slaw, Macaroni & Cheese, pasta salads (see below), and this comforting Macaroni Salad.  My youngest daughter, Diana, says, “I love it better than Macaroni & Cheese.”  I caught my 17-year-old son eating it for breakfast.  He enjoys it too.

What is in this Macaroni Salad?

You will love the combination of these ingredients.  It is delicious!  Typically, you will find this salad made with a lot more, maybe even double, the mayonnaise that I use.  I use 1 cup of mayonnaise and 1/2 cup honey mustard which I think binds everything together without drenching it.  I love hard-cooked eggs, and they are delicious in this recipe, so I use six of them.  The celery and the purple onion add flavor and crunch.  

Everything works together to make this great tasting Easy Macaroni Salad.  Give it a try and let me know what you think.

The perfect pasta dish for summer.
