Macaroni Egg Salad

Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal


I love a good macaroni salad, everybody makes it different. This is my mother-in-laws recipe, She just passed a few months ago and everybody loved this recipe. I asked her for this recipe about a year ago after trying to duplicate but just could not get it right. Im honored to make this recipe for family functions now. We love you Mom and miss you dearly!
Mom always made a large amount, but I cut down to family serving.
