Mom's Macaroni Salad (a cookout favorite)

MOM'S MACARONI SALAD

8 oz. box elbow macaroni (cooked, drained, and cooled. This is one time I rinse the macaroni well or you have to double the dressing and entire salad is too dry.)

-sliced radishes, 4 or 5 large
-cucumber, cut long ways, seeds removed, and sliced
-1 yellow pepper, chopped
-1 tomato, chopped (you can use any type of tomato i.e., Roma, grape, etc. If using grape still cut in half so tomato juice flavors salad)
-1 med-large carrot ribbons or just sliced carrots
-2 hard boiled eggs, grated (a must for this salad)

DRESSING
1 cup Miracle Whip
1 cup mayonnaise
1 TBS apple cider vinegar
1 TBS sugar
salt and pepper to taste (heavy on the pepper)

Mix all dressing ingredients first. Add veggies to macaroni and then mix most of dressing with everything. Refrigerate for about 1 hour to let flavors blend. Not totally necessary but it does help. Right before serving mix rest of dressing in with everything else.

Serves 8-10

This is great with the burgers we always make with it at the following link-

At last!!

I made up a batch of your macaroni salad Elfy, it was absolutely marvellous.

Admitting my mistakes - I forgot the HB eggs.

I've been ordered to make another batch for next week, can't wait. This time I'll remember to add the eggs.

I made up about 540grms of home made pasta - I reckon that's about the same as 8ozs (225grms) of dry stuff.

Neither myself or DW are cucumber fans but I must say it adds that little bit of 'zing' to the dish and is a must.

Mate, it really is beaut & all DC members should serve this at their barbies.

Must have been the bowing that made me forget the eggs.

Another batch of this delicious salad yesterday Elfy for our youngest's second party at M & FIL's home. MIL really got her nose out of joint because all of 'your' pasta salad was eaten & her's was hardly touched.

It's a real favourite. A must for every bbq.

Did you remember the HB eggs? It truly makes a difference.

I agree with Bucktom, radishs are a neat little touch that I really like to add to pasta and rice (and other grain - quinoa and radishs are so nice together) salads, too!

Yes, the spice from the radish is a nice touch. I bought a black radish today and am planning on making some mac salad tomorrow evening to go with some chicken. I'll be using this black radish. I'm also going to use the black radish in some summer rolls tonight!
