An Easy Macaroni Salad is a must-have for grilling season. Serve it at a neighborly cookout or family bbq, kids and adults love it.
This is such a great macaroni salad. There is no overpowering flavor from the onion or celery and it all just blends perfectly. I had my nephew over today and this is one of his favorite pasta salads. I paired it with some chicken tenders, watermelon, and steamed broccoli. Kids gobbled it up, I was only left with broccoli, haha.
I have fond memories of warm summer dinners with my cousins and playing all day with them, those were some of the best days! It’s amazing to me how food has such a lasting memory on us. My mom would always make the best summer family bbq’s. This Macaroni Salad is the greatest side dish for your summer bbq.
You can jazz this macaroni salad up by adding in some of your favorite veggies, hard-boiled eggs, diced ham, and even cheese if you fancy. But, this salad is great as is, my kids love it!
Tips for making Macaroni Salad
- Salt your pasta water.
- Don’t overcook or undercook your noodles.
- Pasta must be fully cooled before you add mayo, it will stay more creamy that way.
