Here is some super important info you must know.
I grew up eating mustard based macaroni salad and have tried numerous macaroni salads that I always had to suffer through, UNTIL this one! I got to the point that if the macaroni salad was “white” I would not even try it.
Picky much?! But my neighbor forced me to try this macaroni salad and would not take NO for an answer, and let me tell you I am SOO glad she did. (You should tweet this..)
Let me say this, do not judge this recipe before you try it. If I knew what was in this recipe, I would have never put it in my mouth because it sounds strange (for a lack of a better word)! But now I am HOOKED!
I have taken this dish to every summer get together and EVERYONE who eats it has begged me for the recipe! I started to take the recipe cards to sit next to the bowl and within thirty minutes they are gone. Do you want to be the hit of the shindig?! This is the best recipe to take then!
Ok, so here you go..grab your ingredients and make it now before you forget! Your taste buds will resent you if you don’t try this recipe soon!
Best Macaroni Salad
- 1 box (16 oz.) macaroni pasta
- 1 small yellow onion diced
- 1/2 green pepper seeded and diced
- 1/2 red pepper seeded and diced
- 1 cup diced celery
- 2 cups mayonnaise
- 1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- salt and pepper to taste
While pasta is cooking start chopping up all the veggies.
After pasta is done I rinse with cool water for a few seconds. This helps the soupiness factor (it will still be soupy just not as much if the pasta is cooled before you add the wet ingredients.)
Mix in all of the ingredients.
Place in fridge until it thickens up. It will look liquidy when you put everything together, but that is ok, it will thicken up in the fridge. I always make it the night before, or give yourself at least 4 hours in the fridge so it thickens enough and does not look like soup!
THEN CHOW DOWN! Seriously you won’t be able to stop eating it! I usually make a double batch because we eat it with every meal. I just put some on that pulled pork sandwich and ate it together….YUM.
My friend also told me that is the AMAZING on hot dogs! I totally believe that, but have not tried it yet.
I just had to throw in another pic!
Do you think the ingredients sound strange, or have you heard of this type of Macaroni salad before?
