How to Make The Best Macaroni Salad


  1. bring a large pan of salted water to a boil, add macaroni and cook until done, I go right along with the package
  2. Once macaroni is done drain it in a colander, and lightly sprinkle with the Italian salad dressing. This flavors the macaroni and will also keep in from sticking together.
  3. add all your diced vegetables, seasoning with salt and pepper as you go, then add your mayonnaise to taste. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to allow all the flavors to marry.
