Mom's Macaroni Salad

Elbow macaroni, celery, sweet relish, and hard-boiled egg make up my mom’s macaroni salad. Light and flavorful, you think you will eat just one scoop on your plate, but then you find yourself going back for seconds and thirds. Backyard barbecues would not be the same without pairing a macaroni salad with a grilled steak, hamburger, or hot dog.

Yum! What a great macaroni salad for summer BBQ's and picnics. It's a delicious basic macaroni salad recipe everyone should have in their recipe box. There's nothing fancy but the flavors are perfect. We loved the slight sweetness the sweet pickle relish gives the salad. The small amount of mustard balances out the flavor and adds a slight tang. Definitely add this to your menu this summer. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
