This is my great Aunt's recipe. Every holiday, she would send a jar of this to our house because she knew I liked it so much! Come to think of it, I'm pretty sure I ate the whole jar!

Thank you Aunt Pauline :)

How to Make Macaroni Salad

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cook macaroni according to package. Drain. While macaroni and eggs are cooking, chop the pickles, onion, celery and tomatoes.
  • 2Melt cheese over macaroni. Set aside.
  • 3Mix pickle juice, mayonnaise and mustard. Pour over macaroni.
  • 4Once eggs are boiled, peel and chop. Add eggs, pickles, onion, celery and tomatoes to macaroni. It's ok to add the eggs while they're warm.
