When our classic Macaroni Salad is served, get ready to hear “More please”. A simple, creamy, tangy recipe that’s stood the test of time!
A must have at any barbecue, 4th of July celebration or large family gathering.
Classic macaroni salad is always a stellar choice.
I’m mean, seriously, who the heck doesn’t love a good classic macaroni salad?!?
Well….sometimes…. I have to admit, I have a hankering for a macaroni salad that’s just a little different.
On those occasions, this recipe is my go to.
It’s all macaroni yumminess with a little coleslaw sweet attitude. Really!!!!
Now, I love a good amount of dressing.
On some salads, I have to make 1 1/2 recipes of dressing just so it tastes right.
This recipe has just the right amount.
It also stays creamy if you make the salad and dress it the day before serving, which I think is an absolute must to get the flavors to jive just right.
I hope you try this incredible Pasta Salad next time you need to show your friends or family just how much you love them! 😉
