What’s in My Macaroni Salad?

I should say “What’s in My Grandma’s Macaroni Salad.” If you like a loaded, throw everything but the kitchen sink kinda macaroni salad, then this ones for you. Serves 8-12 (depends on 2nds and 3rds) Total Time: 30 minutes + chill time


1 16oz box of macaroni 
2 cups mayonnaise 
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar 
1 teaspoon sugar 
Salt and pepper, to taste 
1/2 teaspoon dried mustard 
3 tablespoons sweet pickle juice 
1/2 cup whole milk 
1 cup chopped celery 
1/2 cup chopped red pepper 
1 cup chopped red onion 
1 4.25oz can black olives, drained and chopped 
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped to garnish 


Cook the macaroni al dente in lightly salted water, drain and rinse in cold water until cooled then set aside. In a large bowl whisk together the mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, dried mustard, pickle juice and milk until smooth. Stir in the macaroni, celery, red pepper, red onion and black olives. Chill for a minimum of 6 hours or overnight. The longer the better to blend flavors. Sprinkle with freshly chopped parsley and serve. Yum Yum!
