How to Make Colorful Macaroni Salad


  1. Cook macaroni according to package directions; rinse and set aside.

    Mix the mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, sugar, onion salt, salt and pepper together in a bowl. Stir until well mixed.

    Mix the dressing together with the macaroni.

    Chop the celery and peppers; add to the macaroni and dressing. Stir all ingredients together until evenly distributed and coated with dressing.

    Refrigerate until ready to serve.

    I usually add onion, and chopped eggs. Also, I always make extra dressing, as the macaroni absorbs a lot. You don't want it dry.
