I don't know the amounts...but I add Miracle Whip, lemon jc., eggs, relish, mustard, celery, green onions, sometimes black olives. You can add pimento, or cucumber too. I have found that the miracle whip makes a big difference for our family to like it. Oh...a secret ingredient I add is a teaspoon or 2 of sugar. Don't tell on me. You can't taste the sugar it just gives it a different twist.
I don't have the recipe in front of me, but if this interests you let me know and I will send it.
Macaroni of course and chopped celery, green onion, black olives, hard boiled egg, onion, and and tuna. Dressing is mayo, mustard, sugar, vinegar, milk for moisture and garnish with quartered tomatoes.
I hate HB eggs so don't use them. Just takes less milk to moisten.
I like to add cubes of cheese to mine... The secret of being a good cook is to double the cheese in the recipe or just add it in if it's not already in the recipe. :D
I have a wonderful one. Have been using it for years. Here it is:
Vegetable Macaroni Salad
I box (16 oz.) macaroni
1 t. salt
1 T. oil
Cook macaroni with salt and oil according to pkg. directions (Don't over cook). Drain. Put in a large mixing bowl.
1 large green peper, chopped
1 large onion, chopped (optional) (I don't use)
4 carrots, shredded
Prepare in food processor and add to macaroni
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup vinegar
1 cup sugar
2 cups mayonnaise
1 t. salt 1/4 t. pepper
Blend well, add to macaroni mixture, combining thoroughly. Chill at least 5 hours. Enjoy.
How can anything with sweetened condensed milk in it not be good ! ! !? ! !
Vat, that dressing sounds great...but isn't the quantity too much for one box of macaroni?
Hmm after reading these mine is just plain. Elbow macaroni, tuna, mayo, onion, garlic, celery or celery seed. I make up a big bowl and eat it for a week. :) Sometimes after a day or so I add a little ranch dressing to a serving just for something different.
BLT Macaroni Salad
- Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain and rinse in cold water. In a large bowl, combine the macaroni, green onions, tomato and celery.

Quick, easy Macaroni Salad
Portions depend on how much you want to make and your preference
mayo made with olive oil
cubes of cheese-sharp cheddar
mix and fridge until chilled
Just remembered .............
Quickie Macaroni Salad
Make Kraft Dinner
Add some mayo
That's it, that's all!
............. and of course, toss in any of the add-ins mentioned above. Though that means more work and kind of defeats the simplicity of the quickie!! :D
This is our family's favorite!
